Updates from national meeting of graduate schools

Patrick S. Osmer — January 16, 2014

Pat Osmer

Every December, I participate in the Council of Graduate Schools’ annual meeting where the focus is on graduate education and research and the sharing of best practices. My takeaways from last December’s  meeting include the impact on affirmative action from the recent Supreme Court decision on Fisher v. the University of Texas, the national student financial literacy project that we are participating in, career pathways for graduate students, and the impact of global rankings on graduate student recruitment efforts. More 

I was also pleased that one of our own Ohio State faculty members, Dr. Christian Kleinbub, associate professor of History of Art, was honored at the meeting with the 2013 Gustave O. Arlt Award in the Humanities. More

The Arlt Award is given annually to a young scholar-teacher who has written a book recognized as making an outstanding contribution to scholarship in the humanities. Christian is the award’s 42nd recipient for his book Vision and the Visionary in Raphael (The Pennsylvania State University Press, 2011).  His research offers new appreciation for the transformative affect Raphael had on Renaissance art. Christian showed us images of several often-overlooked details in some of these very well-known paintings, and the response of the audience – and my own – made it clear that his work has advanced knowledge in the field of Renaissance art.

I’m delighted that Christian is among our many distinguished graduate faculty members.



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

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. <a href="http://www.2014PandaSeo.com">Seo Plugin</a>
