The Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service at the Ohio Union is your point of connection for the full spectrum of involvement at Ohio State. You can connect with leadership and service initiatives, engage with student organizations, advance your learning, and create lasting memories.

Experiences from across campus are promoted or housed within the Center to fully meet the needs of all students at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. The Center offers programs, resources, and services for individuals and student groups to help you take the next step in your membership, leadership, and citizenship.

For students looking to get involved, this is a great place to start! Set up a meeting with a staff member, visit organizations who have offices in the Center, or check out a book from the Leadership Library. For students who are already involved, the Center is your home away from home. Utilize resources in the Resource Room, book a meeting space for your exec board, or catch up with friends in the Student Lounge.
