I think OSU spends too much effort trying to be nationally recognized or ranked as a top research instituion.

The mission of OSU should focus on providing college education for the citizens of Ohio.

The economy will bounce back. Government spending created many jobs in the Great Depression, Hoover Dam for example. Some paint that as socialism, others as a wise public investment -- saw a cool site; Balkingpoints ; incredible satellite view of earth

It's 21st Century research that will only ADD and ENHANCE the college education of the citizens of Ohio. Without that spark, that inspiration that hands-on research brings, education can become stale and rote. These research projects and millions of dollars get Ohio students into the labs, standing side by side with cutting edge nationally recognized researchers. That experience gives OSU students a leg-up on the competition in graduate school, the private sector, or even their own grant applications. These research projects and dollars also make OSU more competitive to bring in the best and the brightest researchers, mentors, collaborators, and educators. With the best come the best.

It's when we strive to excel, think outside of the box, ask more questions that our education, educators, students, and community move forward. The rankings are just a descriptor to the public who may not "get" what these research dollars mean.

Yeah, Go OSU! Now get back to education! What they're not telling you is they use slave labor by forcing students to work on their research for grades, while they're still charging students to do the work, as well as thaking the work from private industies that could be employing people including their students as interns to help pay their student loans! GO GEE!!!! Brag and be proud at doing all you can to support student slavery and taking jobs from them.

People who believe big companies should redistribute their profits to the public should pay attention to the significant contributions these companies already provide to not-for-profits and education.
