Ohio State’s students are innovating and creating new sustainability knowledge and innovations.

At Ohio State, we empower our students to gain experience and knowledge so they may become future sustainability leaders. We create a variety of leadership and experiential learning opportunities for our students to turn their passions and ideas into solutions.


The Sustainability Institute is pleased to offer funding to support undergraduate, graduate or professional student research or campus as a lab projects in the areas of sustainability and resilience.

Each year, Ohio State students coordinate Time for Change week, highlighting sustainability efforts and hosting programs for students to educate each other about sustainability. The Sustainability Institute collaborates with offices across campus to assist in these efforts and supports leadership development of students throughout the planning process.
We provide mentoring and funding support to the student leaders for the Time for Change Week student Sustainability Fair and the Women in Sustainability Breakfast. The breakfast brings sustainability professionals to campus to network with students and discuss career paths, challenges and growth for women in the sustainability field.
