Resources to support a diverse and inclusive campus

Ohio State is committed to a safe and welcoming campus, a comprehensive and inclusive education, and a truly anti-racist community for all. All too often there are examples of antisemitism, racism and other hateful behavior reported in the national news.

Diversity and inclusion are essential components of Ohio State's excellence, and the university's shared values establish the commitment to reinforce an ethical culture. There is no place for hate at Ohio State. 

All Buckeyes should report hate activity, discrimination and harassment occurring on Ohio State’s campuses directly to the university’s Office of Institutional Equity (OIE). OIE coordinates the university’s response to all reports of harassment, including microaggressions and discrimination. The OIE team can assist people in learning more about their rights to be free from harassment and discrimination, providing supportive measures and offering resolution options.

For emotional support current Ohio State students can contact the Office of Student Life’s Counseling and Consultation Service. Ohio State employees can access resources through the Employee Assistance Program.
