Strategic Plan: Overview
About the 2022-2027 Strategic Plan
The College of Engineering, which includes the Austin E. Knowlton School of Architecture (Knowlton School), comprises two of the most visible and important teaching, research and service contributors at The Ohio State University. Our inclusive and diverse community leverages comprehensive excellence at an unprecedented scale, preparing students to become leaders and engineers, architects and city/regional planners.
We integrate research, education, discovery, innovation and entrepreneurship from all disciplines to develop high-impact, user-inspired, comprehensive and sustainable solutions to crucial challenges. As a result, we build and serve a better society, enhance economic competitiveness and promote human well-being for all — in our state, our nation and our world.
We seek to develop solutions to important global problems through our discovery and innovation and to prepare leaders in engineering, architecture and planning through our education and outreach programs to enhance economic competitiveness regionally, nationally and globally.
We aspire to be the leader in the discovery, innovation and education in engineering, architecture and planning among public land grant universities, recognizing that diversity, equity and inclusion are essential components of our excellence.
