OHIO for Ohio:
From Education to Entrepreneurship to Extraordinary Change

As our state’s first institution of public higher education, Ohio University (OHIO) has been a center of learning for more than two centuries. And while our faculty and students are engaged in projects encompassing everything from playwriting and photography to alternative energy technologies and medical research, many of OHIO’s recent initiatives are making a difference in new and surprising ways.

Literacy programs, community health services, and facilitating economic development and entrepreneurship by fostering start-up businesses are just a few of the ways OHIO is expanding beyond campus classrooms and making a lasting impact on the lives of many across the region, state, and world.
