The Ohio State University’s research and innovation enterprise is getting a major financial boost from Governor Mike DeWine and JobsOhio.
The Innovation District will receive a major share of a $100 million investment from JobsOhio, the state’s economic development group, into the central Ohio region, advancing the area’s health sciences and research space. Nationwide Children’s Hospital will also receive funding.
At a press conference on Wednesday, Feb. 17, state and university leaders said the funding will strengthen initiatives that are already underway and allow the university to forge new paths.

Whether it’s studying, taking pictures or exercising, students, faculty, staff and visitors flock to Mirror Lake, but the lake is more than just a place for Buckeyes to gather.

Safety is the university’s top priority, and Facilities Operations and Development (FOD), CampusParc, Transportation and Traffic Management (TTM), and the Department of Public Safety work together to offer services during the winter months to keep you safe. As snow and ice start to collect, FOD teams are dispatched to treat campus roadways and sidewalks. They remain on campus throughout the day and night, treating and plowing as needed. CampusParc crews also will be on campus treating parking lots and garages, with garage rooftops remaining open, when possible. Learn more on the CampusParc website .
