You can make a difference through giving
Because bright minds come from every zip code.
Donor contributions provide essential support for students served by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion. ODI welcomes gifts from individuals, corporations, and foundations, and uses those critical resources to assist our student body in a myriad of ways. Giving towards scholarships, student programming, global education opportunities, and enhancing our modern learning environment are some of the chief ways that supporters provide students with the opportunities they need to be successful in today's ever-changing, global environment.
Please reach out to me to discuss a potential gift or to simply share your Buckeye story.
We look forward to working with you to make a difference in ODI.
