About

History

In 1786, 11 men gathered at the Bunch of Grapes Tavern in Boston to propose development of the area north of the Ohio River and west of the Allegheny Mountains known then as the Ohio Country. Led by Manasseh Cutler and Rufus Putnam, the Ohio Company petitioned Congress to take action on the proposed settlement. The eventual outcome was the enactment of the Northwest Ordinance of 1787, which provided for settlement and government of the territory and stated that "…schools and the means of education shall forever be encouraged."

In 1803, Ohio became a state and on February 18, 1804, the Ohio General Assembly passed an act establishing "The Ohio University." The University opened in 1808 with one building, three students, and one professor, Jacob Lindley. One of the first two graduates of the University, Thomas Ewing, later became a United States senator and distinguished himself as cabinet member or advisor to four presidents.

Research

The Ohio University Office of Research and Sponsored Programs (ORSP) supports faculty, staff, and students in their efforts to seek, secure, and manage extramural funding in the most accurate and efficient manner. ORSP is responsible for endorsing all proposals submitted to external agencies by the Ohio University community. ORSP staff aid in proposal development and award negotiation, ensuring alignment with sponsor guidelines and university, state, and federal policies.
