Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service

Ohio University’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Service is a leader among public service schools, working in public-private partnerships to find solutions to challenges facing communities, the economy and the environment. 

The Voinovich School is more than a think tank. We think about big problems – then we collaborate to activate research-based solutions that help communities solve economic and environmental challenges. The Voinovich School hosts projects in every county in Ohio, and then works to scale these solutions across Appalachia, the country, and the world.

Our interdisciplinary educational approach helps us give students unique learning experiences with real clients and organizations, all centered around outcomes. Our distinction among public service schools is our ability to build partnerships with nonprofit organizations, government, and industry to boost our resources and expand our impact.
