Inclusive Event Guide

At Ohio State, we consider the rich diversity of our Buckeye community to be both a defining characteristic and an essential source of our institutional strength. This document was created by the Advancement Inclusion Council (AIC) as a helpful guide and resource for ensuring our events are diverse, accessible, and inclusive to all Buckeyes. In this guide you will find tools, information, and tips to help build and execute these types of events. All inquiries about this guide should be directed to the OSU Advancement event team at inclusiveevents@osu.edu.
