Time and Change
Enable, Empower and Inspire
What Ohio State does matters. And how we do it matters. When we are at our best, we make a real difference to people. Our size, breadth, geography, history and standard of excellence position us to drive the future of higher education.
Our strategic plan is a living framework that allows for flexibility moving forward. What is not flexible is our aspiration to be the best university we can be. We owe it to our students, our faculty, our staff and to our community. We owe it to ourselves. And, because we are Ohio State, we owe it to the nation.

Academic Health Care
The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center will continue our ascent as a leading academic medical center, pioneering breakthrough health care solutions and improving people's lives.
When Ohio State is at its best, we make a real difference in people’s lives. The Time and Change strategic plan sets forth the next steps of what it means to be a flagship public research university in the 21st century.
