Kindness at Ohio State


The concept of kindness can seem simple, but it leads to powerful experiences and profound human connections.

Kindness is more than behavior. The art of kindness means harboring a spirit of helpfulness, as well as being generous and considerate, and doing so without expecting anything in return. Kindness is a quality of being. The act of giving kindness is often simple, free, positive and healthy.

The Ohio State University and the Ohio State Kindness Committee have developed resources to help you practice kindness in your life.
