Ohio University Astronomy Departments
Most universities have an astronomy program, either as a separate department or as part of a physics department. University astronomy departments provide many academic resources, and often include a planetarium and/or an observatory. Some university astronomy departments serve as a focal point for astronomy activity in a community, and can be a valuable resource of astronomy education.

The Ohio State University
The OSU Department of Astronomy has 15 full-time faculty in Astronomy plus 5 joint faculty with Physics, usually 4-5 postdoctoral researchers, and 15-20 graduate students. The Imaging Sciences Laboratory has a staff of ten people, and is concerned with building astronomical instruments in support of the department's research efforts. OSU is a member of two observatory consortiums: The MDM Observatory at Kitt Peak in Arizona (2.4-m and 1.3-m telescopes), and the Large Binocular Telescope (2x8.4-m mirrors) under construction on Emerald Peak atop Mt. Graham in southeastern Arizona. We also operate small telescopes and a planetarium on the OSU Main Campus in Columbus, and hold public lecture programs at the Perkins Observatory.
