Office of Diversity and Inclusion (ODI) Advancement oversees the external communications, alumni relations and fundraising efforts of ODI. Established in 2011, the office works closely with University Communications, the Ohio State Alumni Association and The Ohio State University Foundation to promote the university’s diversity and inclusion mission, programs and activities, and advocate for strategic priorities.

Our goal is to strengthen ODI’s collective ability to engage students, alumni, parents, and a local and national community of friends and organizations in order to generate collaboration and support for diversity in higher education at Ohio State.

From our website and multitude of publications, to developing and coordinating key annual events for alumni and friends, to working with donors and foundations to fund scholarships and support for student programming…creating meaningful engagement opportunities is behind everything we do.
