Advocates for Inclusion and Diversity through Education (AIDE)

AIDE is a student organization that seeks to educate The Ohio State University community through initiatives that promote inclusive dialogue, empower advocates for social justice, raises awareness of issues impacting marginalized identities, and fosters a cognizant campus climate. AIDE is open to everyone and we welcome new members at any time during the year. Meetings are held every Thursday night from 8 - 9 p.m. in the Multicultural Center Alonso Family Room.

Each meeting will feature a dialogue about a social justice issue, a workshop or training about a particular topic, or a guest speaker. We also have opportunities for YOU to be a facilitator for the workshops we host on campus. If you are interested, please come to one of our meetings or contact one of us below.

Please feel free to contact any of us to learn more about AIDE or to collaborate on upcoming events!
