Diversity and Inclusion
Roll the DICE with A&P – gain valuable leadership and diversity skills. A&P staff can earn an annual certificate by completing five DICE-approved activities in the categories of education, service and reflection. Track activities in BuckeyeLearn and complete a reflection survey to qualify.
We can help you grow personally and professionally while embracing Ohio State’s culture in as little as 30 minutes per month throughout the course of a year (the current session is July 2017 - July 2018).
