Mutually beneficial partnerships and collaborations are central to both the definition of outreach and engagement and how the One Health Task Force does its work. We work in collaboration with each other and external partners to enhance the health of communities. Ohio State is the land grant institution to the world.

The university’s Office of Outreach and Engagement has three strategic focus areas:

  • Building the capacity of Ohio State’s outreach and engagement efforts,
  • Coordinating and facilitating outreach and engagement initiatives, and
  • Communicating and advocating for outreach activities that exemplify the meaning of engagement – partnerships and reciprocal relationships that put knowledge to work.

The outreach opportunities provided by the Ohio State / Ethiopia One Health Partnership benefit both the Ohio State community and communities in Ethiopia.
