As one of Ohio State's engaged campuses we connect our teaching, research, and service to issues that concern our local community and the world.
The mission of the Office of Access and Engagement is to establish meaningful partnerships and opportunities within our local community. We focus primarily on educational access, developing students as civically engaged leaders and service scholars, and supporting the community through campus awareness and collaboration.
Founded in 2008, Pelotonia is a grassroots bike tour with One Goal-to End Cancer. Pelotonia is a three-day experience that includes a weekend of cycling and volunteerism to raise millions of dollars each year for cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - James Cancer Hospital and Solove Research Institute. “Rolling for the Cure” is the campus peloton for The Ohio State University at Newark and this year’s team raised almost $50,000.
The impact of the shared campus of Ohio State Newark and COTC is greater than the institutions’ direct spending and employment, overall. Expenditures spur additional spending, setting in motion a chain reaction of additional indirect and induced spending. These economic ripple effects impact the local economy in positive, quantifiable ways.
The Newark Earthworks Center is an interdisciplinary academic center of the Ohio State University that supports programs and research about earthen architecture, including earthworks and conical mounds, in order to promote a better understanding of American Indian pre-contact histories and cultures throughout the Great Lakes region.
