Campus Campaign Council

Council Committees

Members of the council participate on one of four subcommittees created to further advance the effectiveness of volunteer efforts.

The Communications and Marketing Committee assists in identifying communications and marketing opportunities in units across the University, provides feedback on strategy effectiveness and seek out personal testimonials and impact stories for use in print, web, E-mail and other media.

The Major Events Committee plans and coordinates annual events including the Ambassador orientations and celebration event.

Ambassador Liaisons guide ambassadors from colleges and administrative offices as unique campaigns are planned and implemented. They serve as liaisons with the Campus Campaign office, direct ambassadors to available resources, assist with event planning, and respond to questions about giving opportunities.

Wexner Medical Center Work Group assists specifically in developing and implementing strategies to engage faculty and staff at the Wexner Medical Center. This includes Ambassador recruitment, solicitation packet distribution, special events, and communications. The group is comprised of council members and select leadership from each business unit.
