Take the Financial Survey

Patrick S. Osmer — April 17, 2014

Pat Osmer

On Thursday, April 17, I sent an email invitation all Ohio State graduate students to participate in an online survey about your financial circumstances. This survey is one of several data collection efforts associated with Ohio State's participation in the national Enhancing Student Financial Education project.

If you have not yet completed the survey, I encourage you to do so. The survey takes about 10 minutes to complete, and we need to collect responses by midnight on May 1, 2014. This project has a special emphasis on addressing the needs of and understanding the financial circumstances of graduate students.

The study is being conducted by the Council of Graduate Schools, a non-profit organization based in Washington, DC, dedicated solely to the advancement of graduate education and research (www.cgsnet.org), with a grant from TIAA-CREF. Associate Dean Scott Herness and I recently gave a presentation at the Midwestern Association of Graduate Schools meeting about what we plan at Ohio State as part of this project. Details

Your participation in this survey is not required, but the more responses gathered in this survey, the better informed the outcome will be. Your responses will remain confidential and will be aggregated with responses from graduate students across the U.S. The findings will be available in 2015, and we anticipate many good recommendations will emerge that will be developed into best practices for universities to use to improve financial education for their graduate and undergraduate students.

I hope you will participate, and if you have any questions, please contact  Associate Dean Herness, who is coordinating our participation.


Patrick S. Osmer is vice provost for graduate studies and dean of the Graduate School at Ohio State. He is a former chair of the board of directors for the Council of Graduate Schools. Osmer was chair of the Ohio State astronomy department from 1993-2006.

I acquired more interesting things on this weight reduction issue. Just one issue is that good nutrition is highly vital while dieting. A huge reduction in fast foods, sugary meals, fried foods, sweet foods, beef, and bright flour products may perhaps be necessary. Having wastes parasitic organisms, and harmful toxins may prevent objectives for fat-loss. While certain drugs in the short term solve the issue, the bad side effects are not worth it, and in addition they never offer you more than a short lived solution. This is a known incontrovertible fact that 95% of diet plans fail. Many thanks sharing your notions on this web site.

Good article. It is very unfortunate that over the last decade, the travel industry has had to take on terrorism, SARS, tsunamis, flu virus, swine flu, as well as first ever true global tough economy. Through everything the industry has really proven to be robust, resilient and dynamic, discovering new methods to deal with trouble. There are always fresh difficulties and chance to which the business must yet again adapt and react.

I have been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I by no means found any attention-grabbing article like yours. It is lovely value enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made excellent content material as you did, the web will likely be much more useful than ever before.
