Glenn College Celebrates 50th Anniversary of Public Administration Program

Registration Now Open for Fall Anniversary Events

In 1969, The Ohio State University launched Ohio’s first advanced public administration program for public service professionals. Over the next fifty years, this program would produce over 3,000 graduates who have dedicated their careers to serving others and finding solutions for many of the nation’s major public challenges. Today, over 600 students annually call the Glenn College home and want to follow in the footsteps of those before and work for the public good.

This fall, the Glenn College will commemorate this milestone with a series of events designed to engage, inspire and celebrate 50 years of transforming dreamers into doers. Mark your calendars and plan to join us for this special celebration.

Friday, September 6

The Glenn College will kick-off its 50th Anniversary with a special campus celebration, and open house from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m. on Friday, September 6. Dean Trevor Brown and the college’s faculty invite all Glenn College campus alumni, instructors and partners to return to Page Hall for lunch from 12 p.m -1 p.m., in gratitude of your service to Ohio State, and for being an important part of the Glenn College family. In addition to lunch, attendees will get 50th anniversary swag, and are also invited to participate in a Glenn College campus family picture on the steps of Page Hall.
