Government Affairs builds strong working relationships with public officials and their staff. We raise awareness and understanding among these individuals about CFAES' positive impact on Ohio. 

Thank you for all of your support leading up to the 2017 Farm Science Review!

CFAES relies on volunteers to give advice and direction; as well as to serve as advocates to public officials. A land-grant university is for the people, those people help determine our priorities.
