Living Laboratory

Campus as a Living Laboratory

The Ohio State University's Campus as a Living Lab (CALL) program gives students, faculty and staff a chance to make a difference on campus through research efforts that are university-focused in scope.

What is a Living Lab?

At Ohio State, Campus as a Living Lab is the integration of applied teaching and research to university operations, serving a dual purpose of fostering education and research, while reducing the university’s ecological footprint. 

Participate in a Living Lab

A living laboratory project is a paper, poster, report, video, and or any form of research that analyzes an operational issue related to Ohio State’s campuses.  A faculty or staff member must be a sponsor of the project and the participating student must receive academic credit.
