The Journey

The university has pared its capabilities, knowledge and research strengths with those of our community partners at large. By doing so, we are leading the overarching community through an idea generation process aimed at yielding bold, impactful and sustainable solutions to this complex issue.

Our approach has been to have members of our communities, thought leaders, business leaders and university join together to generate ideas that will improve the lives of middle class families in Ohio by 2020 — extending to communities across the United State in the years to come. Our progress is represented in a timeline below, both historically and milestones ahead.
