Dancing Has Never Been So Fun – and Healthy

The sounds of Judy Garland, Ray Charles and Elvis Presley blast through the speakers. Wheelchairs, walkers and tiny feet shuffle through the door. All of these moving parts head towards the music, which leads to recent Ohio State alumna Sarah Kidd’s weekly Dance for Health class.

Bilingual Storybook Project Builds Strong Connections

A common thread connects Ohio State’s Department of Spanish and Portuguese and Salem Elementary School - a desire to promote inclusion and literacy in both Spanish and English. The two were perfect partners to start the Bilingual Storybook Project – an initiative that allows elementary students, their families and Ohio State students to benefit.

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.
