The Values of OHIO: Citizenship Banner



Members of the OHIO community contribute to the advancement of society, both now and for future generations. Such a commitment to the public sphere can have many expressions, such as voting, recycling, volunteering, using public transportation and cleaning up litter. The OHIO citizen gives more than they take. They are responsible citizens both on and off campus, foster community involvement, become engaged citizens acting for the public good, and respect university property and property of others.
