Community Engagement Conference
Partnering to Advance Health and Wellness


Community Engagement Conference
January 24 – 25, 2018
at the Ohio Union

This conference is designed to provide faculty, staff, students and community partners with opportunities for professional development and networking related to engagement. The theme of this year’s conference is Partnering to Advance Health and Wellness.

Designated as a Carnegie community-engaged institution, Ohio State is reaffirming its land-grant covenant with the people of Ohio, the nation and the world through meaningful partnerships that make a measurable impact on resolving the issues of our time. By doing so, we increase our relevance, and consequently, our value to our communities. We believe the most effective partnerships are based on a spirit of reciprocity and mutual benefit where the contributions of both partners are valued and celebrated.

We are currently seeking presenters to feature a wide array of learning opportunities designed to increase our collective capacity to initiate, build and sustain health-focused community engagement projects. Please submit your proposal if you are interested in joining us as a presenter.

We encourage you to mark your calendars now and make plans to join us in January 2018.
