Think Beyond Summit
Urban Universities + Thriving Communities
Communities flourish when everyone within them has the opportunity to flourish.
When urban-serving universities and communities join forces, we can confront the complexities of education, healthcare, economic and human development in order to:
Prepare an increasingly diverse workforce to successfully navigate careers
through technological, economic and social change.
Assess, treat and prevent urban health risks for increasingly diverse populations.
Create sustainable solutions for continued and inclusive growth that improve the quality of life in our communities.
Join educators, industry, nonprofit and community leaders at The Ohio State University to exchange ideas and reinvigorate our collective efforts toward strengthening and sustaining vibrant, inclusive communities.
When: Tuesday, January 28th, 2020

Featured Discussion: Mobility and Inclusive Communities
Columbus and many other communities are increasingly polarized, leading to stark difference in access to opportunities and the increased likelihood of social exclusion. Cities, local organizations, and universities can work together to mitigate these differences through transportation planning, investments and land-use policies that lead to more inclusive and cohesive communities. This panel features Columbus leaders who are working towards a more socially equitable community that provides opportunities to all.
