We make it easy to engage

The corporate partnerships team facilitates mutually-beneficial relationships to help advance the objectives of both the university and businesses. We are the front door for engagement with Ohio State. We keep the communication going in both directions, building meaningful collaborations between the right people across key engagement areas.

Our Model of Engagement

We provide holistic coordination and management of corporate relationships.  Each relationship is unique and we’re here to help make the most impact for both the university and the company partner. Our team serves as a central point of coordination, connecting company partners to the right people and resources, finding innovative ways to engage with Ohio State’s top talent and resources.

Why Ohio State?

The university’s breadth, scope and excellence make Ohio State a leading force of education, innovation and change – locally, nationally, and globally. Ohio State is one of only a few universities in the U.S. that, in a single location, houses 15 different colleges, including seven health sciences colleges and a college of agriculture. Ohio State brings extensive tools to the table—creative minds, expertise, experience and world-class facilities. This enables us to discover innovative solutions to complex problems and to equip Buckeyes with the critical thinking, innovation and skills they need to drive change beyond Ohio State.
