  • Ken and Leitner Greiner Excellence in Teaching Fund

    In 1987 the Greiner Excellence in Teaching Fund was established to recognize, encourage and reward teaching excellence in the business college.

    Ken Greiner has said: “I highly respect the efforts of research and understand the mission of our land-grant institution. It is my belief through my own observations that not enough is being done to recognize excellence in classroom instruction.”

    The Greiner Excellence in Teaching Award recognizes an outstanding undergraduate and graduate faculty member annually through nominations by students and fellow professors.

    Ken graduated with an OSU business degree in 1960, and Leitner earned hers in 1961.
