President Gee Cites ACCAD in 2008 End of Year Speech to the Faculty
OSU President Gordon Gee, in his annual Speech to the Faculty, held up ACCAD an exemplary Center of multidisciplinary research and collaboration. "Ohio State is the nations most comprehensive research university, and faculty and students use our breadth to great advantage. Think of the trans-institutional, multi-disciplinary work in biofuels and biomaterials. Or visual artists, choreographers, musicians, and computer scientists collaborating through the University's Advanced Computing Center for the Arts and Design." (May 28, 2008).
The President went on to say that "Truly extraordinary work happens here every day -- in classrooms, laboratories, and studios. Indeed, the work of Ohio State’s faculty and students is taking place at every moment, around the world! Now is the time to gain broader recognition for that remarkable work. For what has been -- and what can be – realized at Ohio State. Now is precisely the moment to capitalize on that position of strength." ACCAD is proud to be a leader in this area and looks forward to working with the President to build from our reputation and excellent work.
