One Ohio State Framework

What is the One Ohio State Framework?

The One Ohio State Framework plan, completed in 2010, is a structure for expansion and renovation, ensuring the academic mission drives the physical environment, connecting ideas and information to implementation, and supporting access to an affordable, excellent education. The Framework consists of principles, a long-term vision, scenarios, tools, and process recommendations. Ohio State is now working to review 2010 plan assumptions, engage the university to inform and update the plan as part of Framework 2.0.

Frequently Asked Questions 

 

Why is the plan being updated?

Framework 2.0 will challenge the previous assumptions of the 2010 plan, validate or update plan principles and conduct an in-depth study into selected areas on campus. The focus of the update will be on the physical planning of the campus and its changes and build upon the previous and current projects implemented through the original One Ohio State Framework Plan.
