Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center

The Ohio Statewide Family Engagement Center at The Ohio State University is a leader in the field of family, school, and community engagement. We are located at the Center on Education and Training for Employment, a translational research center within the College of Education and Human Ecology.

Our goal is to bring research to action by providing schools, families, and community partners with the tools they need to work together so all children have success in learning and life.
