Special Message from the Glenn College and Dean Trevor Brown
The Ohio State University has transitioned to online learning and canceled all non-essential campus events through early May due to the coronavirus outbreak. In accordance with this policy and our own concern for the safety of speakers and attendees, the Glenn College has canceled A Call to Action: 21st Century Leadership and Public Service scheduled for April 7, as well as
all alumni and community programing scheduled during this time period. If possible, we hope to reschedule or resume these events in the fall.
The health and well-being of Glenn College alumni and friends is important to us. To learn more about the symptoms, risks and how to protect yourself against Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), click here
Thank you for your understanding and support as we work to keep one another safe.
