Ohio State Student Leads by Partnering in Community

In recent years, the founding of Ohio State's Second-Year Transformational Experience Program (STEP) has helped multiple students facilitate community programs through its fellowship grant funding. One such student is DaVonti' Haynes, a fourth-year undergraduate student majoring in Public Affairs, who has been innovating the way educational programs are extended outside of the university since his freshman year. Haynes has been instrumental in creating multiple programs at Ohio State, but specifically A Day in the Life of a Buckeye and Mentor-A-Buckeye have been personal projects.

Engagement is:

The collaboration between institutions of higher education and their larger communities (local, regional/state, national, global) for the mutually beneficial exchange of knowledge and resources in a context of partnership and reciprocity.
