Lisa Barclay, Assistant Dean

Thank you for visiting the Community Building resources page; here, you will find an array of information and resources  that will enable us to:

  • build strong communities and foster a strong sense of belonging;
  • improve access for all members of the COE and broaden participation in STEM;
  • develop intentional retention efforts that address outcome disparities and;
  • empower all students, staff and faculty to excel in a culturally diverse environment and lead in a global economy.
Community building is dynamic work, not static. Therefore we are committed to providing tools and resources to support the work. Take a few moments to explore the website, where you will find a wealth of information on activities, programs, services and learning opportunities related to community building and inclusive excellence. 

As members of the Buckeye community, we must continue to increase our awareness and understanding of the University's land-grant mission and shared values to create a community where we all thrive.
