Propel Ohio

Propel Ohio Leadership Program


Undergraduate Student Government is pleased to announce we are now accepting applications for Propel Ohio 2017.


Propel Ohio is a leadership conference promoting civic engagement and inspires undergraduate students to be active civic leaders in the great state of Ohio. This one day conference put on by U.S. Senator Sherrod Brown’s office, engages students in conversations around issues such as childhood poverty, education, housing security and more.


This year’s conference will be held on Friday, November 17, 2016 at the University of Akron


Senator Brown and other guest speakers will facilitate workshops and discussions on ways college students can be actively engaged in confronting some of the challenges within their communities.


Last year 250 student leaders were in attendance, including students from Kent State. This year we are excited to send more students to learn about some of the most pressing issues facing the state. We will appoint up to four undergraduate students to attend after the applications are shared with us by Senator Brown’s office. We encourage you to apply on Senator Brown’s website before the deadline, Tuesday, October 10, 2017. Decisions will be made and shared with students by Tuesday, October 31st, 2017.
