Community Kits

What is a Community Kit?

A Community Kit is a tool that offers a series of learning resources and reflection questions on a variety of social justice issues. Each kit has an assortment of articles, videos, fact sheets and questions for engagement that can be used to meet the needs of individuals and communities here at Ohio State and beyond. Anyone can use the Community Kits - individuals, student organizations, residence halls, classrooms and the greater community. For more information, visit go.osu.edu/communitykits

Community Kits for DICE

You may complete one Community Kit as an individual during the academic year to receive one DICE point. For more information, visit go.osu.edu/DICE

Community Kits for Groups

You can use Community Kits to foster dialogue in your classroom, staff meeting, residence hall, student organization or friend group. For a more information about using community kits for groups, visit go.osu.edu/communitykits.
