Ohio University invites students, faculty, staff, alumni and friends to an open house at 29 Park Place on Tuesday, Nov. 12, 2019 from 4 – 6 p.m. 

As announced in April 2018the former presidential residence at 29 Park Place will be repurposed into a communal space designed to raise the profile of academic engagement across Ohio University and in the community. 

The open house will provide an opportunity to view renderings and plans for the space.  

“At the heart of Ohio University, academically and geographically, this space is the perfect location for our new Academic Engagement Center,” Ohio University President M. Duane Nellis said. “Academic engagement is central to everything that happens at our University, and the new Center will be a resource for anyone interested academic progress and success, including students, faculty, staff, alumni, and community members.” 
When it opens, the Academic Engagement Center will serve as a home to the Center for Campus and Community Engagement, the OHIO Honors Program, and signature academic engagement programs like the Cutler Scholars Program and the Ohio Fellows Program. However, anyone looking for a chance to connect, even if they don’t know exactly what they are looking for, is welcome to visit 29 Park Place. Please join us on November 12 for a glimpse into this future hub for academic excellence at OHIO.
