For Communities

Ohio State engages in mutually beneficial partnerships with our communities – throughout Ohio, across the country and around the world.

From health and wellness to agricultural and extension services to business and economic development and more, Ohio State faculty, staff and students are partnering with community organizations to positively impact communities and the university.
