Ohio State’s strength has always been — and always will be — people and our potential to solve problems together.

Adapting to COVID-19 and the disruption it has caused demands ingenuity, compassion, flexibility and spirit. We must work together across communities, combine expertise and create new ways of thinking to deliver solutions — at an unmatched scale. 

Together, we are and always will be champions for people and their potential.
