The 2015 Roads Scholars Tour saw a group of more than 50 faculty, administrative leaders and community partners take a two-day road trip across northeastern Ohio on July 21-22. Participants toured sites where the university has key partnerships and saw first-hand the reach and impact that teaching, research and engagement collaborations have on communities and residents across the state.
As the state's flagship land-grant university, Ohio State has forged partnerships in each of Ohio's 88 counties and works with communities to address the state's needs and create opportunities for growth and progress.
Starting at the Havener Eye Institute near the Columbus campus 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 Ohio's only national park, took a look at service-learning courses and concluded with a stop at Ohio State's Wooster campus.
