Building Community


The Barnett Center recognizes that Ohio State’s motto of “Education for Citizenship” will require constant engagement and retooling for our students, staff, faculty and administration as we collectively imagine the welcoming and innovative community that we want to become. This inclusivity should be reflected in our teaching, research and community service. We must go beyond statements of solidarity and put our motto to the test. This site was established as a community resource that offers opportunities for all of us to become better educated and engaged citizens of OSU, Columbus and the world.
