Inspiring Citizenship, Developing Leadership

At the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, we teaches the next generation of public servants leaders how to solve complex issues facing our communities. We prepares students and public service professionals with the tools and opportunities needed to make change a reality in civic life. At the Glenn College, we emphasize people and communities. Our commitment to working together and finding common ground across diverse perspectives and experiences sets us apart.

At the John Glenn College of Public Affairs, we go beyond the textbook by challenging and preparing students for a lifetime of collaborative relationships to build the communities of the future. We believe anything is possible through the power of collective action for the common good: it’s part of who we are and what drives the Glenn College experience.
