Educators, industry, nonprofit and community leaders at The Ohio State University gathered to exchange ideas and reinvigorate our collective efforts toward strengthening and sustaining vibrant, inclusive communities.

It was made evidently clear that communities flourish when everyone within them has the opportunity to flourish.

Through thought-provoking presentations by world-renowned speakers and thoughtful discussions, summit attendees learned that when urban-serving universities and communities join forces, we can confront the complexities of education, healthcare, economic and human development.

We can prepare an increasingly diverse workforce to successfully navigate careers through technological, economic and social change. And together, we can create sustainable solutions for continued and inclusive growth that improve the quality of life in our communities.
