19 Centrality of BMPS Programs
OAA has analyzed the programs that are consistently strong in the 14 public universities rated more highly than Ohio State by USNWR. 100% in the top third of their discipline Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Chemistry Cell and Developmental Biology Psychology 75 to 99% in the top third of their discipline Evolution Ecology and Behavioral Science Economics English Physics History Mathematics Political Science Sociology 50 to 74% in the top third of their discipline Anthropology Geosciences Molecular Genetics Spanish and Portuguese Statistics and Biostatistics 25 to 29% in the top third of their discipline Geography Philosophy Classics French Language and Literature Linguistics

20 Graduate Program Rankings†
Nationally ranked programs by US News & World Report* Biology ranks 25th % nationally Chemistry ranks 28th % nationally Mathematics ranks 29th % nationally Physics ranks 25th % nationally *Note USNWR does not rate Astronomy or Statistics programs † these are percentile rankings, not absolute 20

22 BMPS Faculty Awards & Recognitions
Current + emeriti: 6 National Academy of Sciences members (OSU has 10 total) 11 Ohio Eminent Scholars 11 Distinguished University Professors 1 National Medal of Science winner Astronomy • Chemistry • Earth Sciences Mathematics • Physics • Statistics 22

23 Rock Star School of Earth Sciences Professor Lonnie Thompson makes Rolling Stone’s list of top 25 “warriors & heroes in our understanding of global climate issues.”. November 2005 Astronomy • Chemistry • Geological Sciences Mathematics • Physics • Statistics 23

24 BMPS SWOT Analysis Strengths: Great faculty and students, some wonderful facilities Weaknesses: Some poor facilities, small number of training grants and national centers, chemistry lab wait lists, CBS salaries Opportunities: “One University” concept and the emphasis on grand problems promotes collaboration within BMPS and with Engineering, Medicine, FAES , and SBS, leading to new external resources (training grants, national centers), creation of an entrepreneurial culture Threats: Skyrocketing start-up and renovation costs, reward system is not aligned with larger goals, robust, well fortified and fanatically defended silo’s, fear of change
