About Us

We’re an inclusive, supportive community where you can comfortably join in or confidently stand out.

Our values are founded on our land-grant purpose to extend higher education broadly to the sons and daughters of Ohio and beyond. We believe:

  • Complex problems need many viewpoints to achieve the best solutions
  • More diverse backgrounds and ideas increase the likelihood of creativity and new solutions
  • Increasing diversity gives us access to talent currently not represented
  • A diverse faculty has positive effects on our diverse student body

Within our school and across campus, there are a wide range of resources to help every student, staff, and faculty member find the support and community they need to thrive. We are committed to creating an environment that will facilitate the academic achievement of students from groups underrepresented in the health and rehabilitation sciences. Our services include academic and career counseling, student advocacy, and support for educational, recreational, and service activities that promote personal growth and cultural sensitivity.
