Parent and Family Roundtable

Ohio State is an inclusive and supportive community that values diversity in people and ideas. Our Parent and Family Roundtable brings together a standing group of families to create opportunities for regular, ongoing dialogue focused on the holistic student experience including but not limited to health, safety, wellness, inclusion and belonging. The Roundtable is comprised of 20-25 families (one to two parents or family members per invitation). Roundtable participants serve up to a two year term. This group is selected through an application process during the summer.
