Land-Grant Universities: Mission in Service to the Well-Being of Communities

Join us for the next Buckeye Smart Speaker Series event!

Ohio State is a land-grant university, one of several institutions of public higher education first founded during the American Civil War with the mission of bringing science, technology and the arts to the American people. From the beginning, these land-grant universities were supposed to meet the most pressing needs of the communities they were designed to serve. Ohio State professor Stephen M. Gavazzi has been studying the ways that land-grant universities are either sustaining or neglecting these community obligations, and will discuss these and related issues for land-grant universities of the future.
