Mission & Vision

We are committed to excellence and focusing on the entrepreneurial spirit integral to The Ohio State University. We conduct scholarship; support faculty, staff, and students engaged in research and development efforts; and create learning opportunities within the context of education, workforce, and community development. 


Our center translates research into practices resulting in a prepared and effective workforce and healthy communities that support well-being and economic prosperity. Three pillars guide our decisions. 


    • Elevate our research profile by aligning the center with the College of Education and Human Ecology’s mission and values.
    • Increase our external and internal visibility, quality of work, impact, and funding.
    • Provide a productive and intellectually stimulating working environment where everyone feels valued and supported.
