The John Glenn Civic Leadership Community is a co-curricular program sponsored by the Ohio State University’s John Glenn College of Public Affairs and Office of University Housing and is open to all students interested in public affairs, public policy, leadership, community service, and the political process, regardless of one’s intended major.
The Leadership Community allows first-year students with an interest in public service and policy to live together in the residence halls. As an undergraduate student, you will spend an average of only 15-20 hours a week in the classroom. It is important that where you live and spend the majority of your time is a friendly and supportive environment, both academically and socially.
In the John Glenn Civic Leadership Community, the fun begins BEFORE the first day of class! You will participate in an early arrival program that puts you on campus two days before the arrival of the full freshman class for a special orientation.
Throughout the year, Learning Community programming is focused areas: Policy, Academics, Service, Advocacy and Social.
Incoming freshmen will be able to apply for the Leadership Community when they complete their Ohio State housing contracts. The Leadership Community is housed in residence hall and typically consists of 40-60 first and second-year students.
