As a flagship land-grant institution, Ohio State recognizes its responsibility to support mutually-beneficial community-university partnerships. Ohio State engages in community event sponsorships to develop meaningful partnerships that support community-based non-profit organizations thereby fulfilling its responsibility to further the public good for the citizens and institutions of Ohio. Ohio State is pleased to provide its support to external events that:

  • Align with the mission of the university and those of its colleges or units;
  • Are relevant across the university;
  • Enhance the quality of life and meaningful partnerships in the local community; and
  • Raise the profile of the university within the community.

The majority of sponsorship support will be directed to events that support the University's core goals: teaching and learning; research and innovation; and outreach and engagement.
