... In Teaching
Learning the modern way - the ODU way - isn't one dimensional. It sparks your imagination, taps all of your senses, and makes use of today's technologies. Our professors bring classrooms to life. They are the recipients of 26 Virginia Outstanding Faculty Awards, the highest honor for teaching in the state, and numerous other teaching recognitions. Nearly 95% of our classrooms and modern buildings are packed with 21st century teaching technology. From our award-winning Career Management Center to our study abroad, Honors College and Center for Service and Civic Engagement, learning happens in and out of our classrooms. One thing is for certain, what you learn at ODU will prepare you to succeed anywhere.
... In Scholarship
ODU professors are masters in their fields, recognized by peers, organizations, businesses, and industries across the country. More than 75 professors have been named Fellows in national societies and professional organizations, and nearly 400 professional and academic journals are edited by ODU faculty.
Our research teams generate $88 million in annual funding through more than 400 ongoing projects. Supported by grants from NSF, NIH, Department of Energy, and DOD, among others, we've already made ground-breaking advances in several fields.
