Driving Vibrant External Engagement and Impact
Anchor institutions provide long-term stability and economic impact to their local communities. This description certainly fits The Ohio State University given the history and reach of our six campuses and medical center. One important contemporary validation of the institutions longstanding community engagement can be seen in the fact that the Carnegie Foundation has classifed Ohio State as an Engaged University since 2008, which signals deep and broad outreach and impact across a substantial number of metrics. This achievement is impressive, especially in combination with the universitys Carnegie R1 status as one of the countrys leading research institutions. The power of these two credentials working in tandem is profound.
