| I had a great time meeting some of you and your families during Move-In over the weekend. I look forward to meeting many more of you throughout the semester.
We welcomed another talented incoming class at Convocation, projected to be among the most prepared and diverse in our history. Our newest Buckeyes come from all 88 Ohio counties, 46 states and 23 countries — and bring unique talents and perspectives to our university community.
We're excited about the resources that our new Digital Flagship initiative offers — including a new mobile iOS design lab coming to campus later this fall.
Also today, we are announcing new steps to address sexual misconduct on our campus, including a centralized office to assist students, faculty and staff. This is a vitally important issue on our nation's campuses, and we are committed to advancing and strengthening our support and resources.
Nothing is more important than the safety and well-being of our community. Student input and feedback have been and will continue to be critical to these efforts as we move forward.
Finally, just a reminder to be extra careful as you navigate around campus, as pedestrians, cars, bikes and scooters share the road! It's an exciting time, but also very busy.
Best wishes for a healthy, happy and productive year.
