Sustainability at Ohio State
Ohio State is a comprehensive land-grant research university with more than 600 faculty and research scientists in sustainability education and research; thousands of passionate students who take advantage of over 1,000 courses that support sustainability learning; an enduring mission to serve our local and global communities; and a strong commitment to sustainability in its campus operations.
The complex challenges of sustainability and the need to improve social, economic and environmental conditions underscore the need for the deep integration Ohio State has across a breadth of disciplines including natural and physical sciences, social and behavioral sciences, engineering, public health, business, law, planning, policy, arts and humanities. These academic units and other internal partners such as research labs and centers, Student Life, and Administration and Planning departments collaborate and leverage our research and knowledge toward a more sustainable and resilient campus as well as our local and global communities.
