Ask any Ohio University alumni and they will likely tell you that their most memorable college experience was something they took part in outside of the classroom—a club, activity, organization, group, or special event. Student Affairs programs enhance college life, reinforce academic achievement, connect the University to the local community and promote institutional pride.
Our five core values of character, community, citizenship, civility and commitment, define who we are and what it means to be a Bobcat. Our programs not only strengthen OHIO’s position as the best-student centered learning experience in America, they also aid in our region’s outreach and economic development efforts.
We work continually to enrich the educational experience for OHIO students, but our margin of success depends on the generous support of you – our friends and donors. With your help, we can continue to create limitless opportunities for OHIO students to reach their full potential.
We believe that you should be able to support what matters most to you, so you can designate your gift to any area you desire. We have several exciting current initiatives that will benefit from your generosity:
- Investing in leadership programs that shift students from passive learners to active, engaged citizens;
- Expanding the Ohio University Performing Arts Series, which will attract high-caliber performers while offering more students paying jobs and real-world experience in the arts;
- Supporting renovation and maintenance efforts for Baker University Center, Galbreath Chapel, and Memorial Auditorium, safeguarding these Athens landmarks so that they remain intact for future generations;
- Enhancing the Parent and Family Fund to ensure that a critical safety net is in place for students who need it.
Private giving has always had a significant impact on the Division of Student Affairs. Thanks to the generosity of our donors and friends, we’ve been able to help students when they needed it most. From providing for students who couldn’t afford to eat, to purchasing airfare for a student experiencing a family emergency, the support you provide is critical.
Your gift – no matter the amount – makes a huge difference in the lives of our students.
