Core Values

To chart a path towards the future, the College of Education and Human Ecology must have a charter that orients its steps. The dean, in partnership with faculty and staff, has developed five core values that represent our mission to serve The Ohio State University, the larger Columbus community, and the state and world in which we live.

Excellence:
in transformative high-impact teaching, research, and service devoted to our students and community

Justice:
in our plans, actions, and outcomes especially in the face of challenging circumstances and in the absence of agreement

Diversity:
in creating a community that is inclusive and equitable in representation, language, action, and behavior

Innovation:
in a continuous process of discovery that is solution focused and community based

Internationalization:
in cultivating an academic community with global awareness and engagement
