Welcome to the CARE Office

Ohio State’s Shared Values recognize diversity and inclusion as “core principles in everything we do” and “essential components of our excellence.” The College of Engineering continues to develop initiatives that build cross-cultural and critical thinking skills that support equity-conscious communities where everyone thrives. 

The Community, Access, Retention and Empowerment Office (CARE) has programs, activities, and services for students, staff, and faculty that align with our land-grant mission and shared values.  

The CARE Mission: Through shared responsibility and collaboration with university and college-wide partners, we advance inclusive excellence by:  

  • integrating the University's shared values into the daily operations of the college    
  • supporting student motivation for entering and persisting in engineering, architecture and planning
  • implementing inclusive and equity-centered initiatives for students, staff and faculty
