Family members and long time friends gathered for the Grand Opening of The Keith B. Key (KBK) Center for Student Leadership and Service on Friday, September 7, 2012. Close to 200 guests attended the event held at The Ohio Union. This premier facility meets the changing needs of students at The Ohio State University by serving as a center of activity, community dialogue and learning. The center was named after Mr. Key not only due to his $1 million contribution to The Office of Student Life, but was based upon his commitment to leadership and service.
The Keith B. Key Center for Student Leadership and Service at the Ohio Union is a place where students can discover and enhance their leadership skills through workshops, community service, sororities and fraternities, or one of more than 1,000 student organizations. The Center is the student’s point of connection for the full spectrum of involvement at Ohio State. The Center offers programs, resources, and services for individuals and student groups to help take them to the next step to membership, leadership, and citizenship.
