On the Road with the 2015 Roads Scholars Tour

The Roads Scholars Tour, a two-day, traveling seminar led by the Office of Outreach and Engagement, took more than 50 faculty, community partners and administrators to northeast Ohio on July 21-22 to meet community partners, tour sites where the university has key partnerships, and see first-hand the reach and impact that teaching, research and engagement collaborations have on communities and residents across the state. The tour was highlighted by an evening event at the Cleveland Museum of Art in partnership with the Offices of Advancement and Student Life with more than 100 alumni and friends.

Starting at the Havener Eye Institute near the Columbus campus, exploring industrial partnerships at Next Generation Films and ArcelorMittal and culminating with a visit to the Cleveland Museum of Art, day one of this year's tour highlighted some of Ohio State's many vital connections with health care, industry and the arts. On day two, the tour ventured through the Cuyahoga Valley National Park, took a look at service-learning courses at the University of Akron and concluded with a stop at Ohio State's Wooster campus to learn more about the teaching, research and engagement taking place there.
