Commitment to diversity

A message from the dean/director

“Promoting diversity, equity and inclusion is vital to the mission of The Ohio State University at Newark. As Ohio State's most diverse campus, we foster an atmosphere of care, compassion and mutual respect in which each of us is valued for our intellectual and cultural perspectives. Our commitment to excellence extends to everything we do, including reflecting critically on our culture and continually changing it for the betterment of all. This reflects the high value we place on acting with integrity as individuals and as a collective, and increases our ability to innovate, solve problems, and make a positive impact within the campus environment and beyond. ”
