"To be true to our vision of one Ohio State, we must create a seamless atmosphere in which teaching is seen as a form of scholarship and in which scholarship is understood as a stimulus to teaching. This brings me to the third strategy I want Ohio State to pursue. I want this university to focus on faculty success as never before.
"We must do everything we can to retain, attract, and reward world-class teachers and researchers. The previous strategy of putting students first makes it clear why this step is appropriate and necessary. Ohio State's investment in its students is vital to our progress. Just as vital is our investment in you.
"There is no doubt that Ohio State is attracting and retaining the best faculty. But in the predatory world of the Academy—and believe me, as one of its chief predators, I know whereof I speak—we have to do still more. We must re-recruit our faculty every day, and then we have to continue to advance the institution by recruiting additional pre-eminent faculty."
From Ohio State President E. Gordon Gee's Address to the Faculty Council, Oct. 4, 2007
