Today’s graduates will spend their careers moving forward in a global environment that demands the ability to be nimble and responsive. The College of Arts and Sciences is in the position, with your support, to provide the ideal education to take on such a future.

Your support will create innovative interdisciplinary programs and facilities, provide access for diverse and creative undergraduate and graduate students, and provide the resources necessary to retain and attract top-tier faculty who both teach and conduct research. These goals are only possible through the financial margin and flexibility that private support provides. Only your generosity can provide all the resources to allow us to challenge our students to learn in new ways—as tomorrow demands—and to solve problems by looking beyond traditional academic boundaries. But for you, we cannot as ably prepare our graduates to be adaptable, creative, engaged, and informed citizens of the world.

The College of Arts and Sciences has created a strategic vision for the next several years that is in full alignment with the university’s strategic plan, and we have identified funding priorities in sync with the five priority areas at the heart of the But for Ohio State campaign—place students first, elevate faculty and academic excellence, create modern learning environments, embolden the research agenda, and drive high-impact innovation.

In addition to the priority areas, gifts made directly to the college can support your individual passions and interests.

Contributing to the Ohio State Fund for the Arts and Sciences will enable college leadership to allocate funds where they are most needed to create responsive and cutting-edge programming.

We are a unique university community that encourages dynamic conversations, fosters broad collaborations, and creates an environment for life-long learning.

At the center of everything we do is our unshakable commitment to the idea that there is great value in providing our students with an excellent liberal arts and sciences experience.

An arts and sciences education provides a framework for experiential learning for our students to mentor, teach, and inspire; serving the communities where we live, throughout Ohio, and beyond its borders.
