Ukraine War Resources

Ukraine War Resources

Like so many others across the country, our community is watching events unfold in Ukraine. Our thoughts are with students, faculty and staff impacted by the war. Ohio State has always been and always will be an institution that celebrates diversity and stands for dialogue and diplomacy over violence.

While this crisis is ongoing, an action we can collectively take is to engage in discourse and education. There are many resources available to help those impacted by the war as well as for all of us to learn about the roots of the crisis. Ohio State’s motto is Education for Citizenship, and as part of the university’s commitment to develop informed citizens and support our community, the Office of Academic Affairs and the Office of International Affairs have partnered to provide a centralized list of academic and support resources for the campus community.

In response to Governor Mike DeWine’s Executive Order 22-02D prohibiting state of Ohio investment or purchasing activity from aiding Russia, Ohio State has reviewed contracts, investments and purchases and has determined that the university does not currently have any Russian suppliers and does not have any direct Russian holdings in its endowment or other university investment funds.
