Campus Campaign Council

The Campus Campaign Council is comprised of faculty and staff from across the University and Wexner Medical Center. Members of the council serve as an advisory board for the campus-wide fundraising effort, helping to promote and execute the campaign and its mission.

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.

Team Captains guide coordinators from colleges and administrative offices as unique campaigns are planned and implemented. Team captains 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 communication. The group is comprised of council members and select leadership from each business unit.
