Forward: Giving Impact Report

As Buckeyes, we are taught that you can never pay back, so you should always try to pay forward.

In 2016, the College of Engineering launched Forward, its annual giving impact report. In addition to sharing giving facts and stats, the report highlights just a few of the ways our supporters keep the College of Engineering moving forward through their remarkable commitment to our students, faculty, research and community outreach. 

Your support makes it possible for us to be an innovative leader in engineering and architecture education, to create new discoveries across a broad range of applications and disciplines, and to make a difference at home and abroad. Thanks to the generosity of the supporters whose stories are featured within—and countless others—the College of Engineering now offers more scholarships and fellowships than ever before, enabling more bright, young people to obtain a world-class Ohio State education. Our students excel in the classroom, workplace and in the world because of you.
