Reflecting on our shared future

 
 
     
 

Dear Buckeyes:

As a university, we exist to create knowledge, explore ideas and welcome diverse opinions in an atmosphere that is open, collegial and safe for each of us.

This highly contested election has left many in our community bruised and very uncertain. It is incumbent upon us all to rebuild the sense of inclusion and support that has been key to the vibrant and engaged experience that is Ohio State.

I am reminded that when approaching seasons of time and change, it is important to consider and focus on our values—particularly respect, integrity and compassion.

We must be sensitive and care for each other. We remain committed to our founding principles and will continue to follow them as we work together to create our shared future.

Sincerely,

Michael V. Drake, MD

President
