The John Glenn College of Public Affairs is a public policy and management school at The Ohio State University. The Glenn College offers undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs in public affairs. The Glenn College provides research, training and technical assistance to state, public and nonprofit organizations. The college is named after United States Senator and Astronaut John Glenn. On January 30, 2015, the Ohio State University Board of Trustees approved a change of status of the former John Glenn School of Public Affairs making the new John Glenn College of Public Affairs the 15th college at The Ohio State University.
The school officially was formed through a June 30, 2006 merger of the John Glenn Institute and the university's School of Public Policy and Management. The John Glenn Institute was founded in 1998 as a public service, research, and professional development institute. The School of Public Policy and Management was a part of the College of Commerce, then College of Social and Behavioral Sciences after its 1969 founding.
The Glenn College is home to the Battelle Center for Science & Technology Policy and the Ohio Education Research Center. The college has a Washington, D.C. office that works with government agencies and NGOs and is the headquarters of the college's Washington Academic Internship Program.
The Glenn College is located in Page Hall, a building initially opened in 1903 and occupied by the law school, the business school, offices of the Ohio Department of Health, the old College of Commerce and Journalism (the school of public administration that is a component of the John Glenn School was part of the College of Commerce), and the College of Music.
The predecessor John Glenn Institute moved into Page Hall after its 2003–2005 renovation. The $16 million renovation gutted the interior, leaving only the facade. A crowd of nearly 500 watched the rededication on March 3, 2005, with speeches delivered by former Senator John Glenn, Columbus Mayor Michael B. Coleman, Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Thomas J. Moyer, Ohio State President Karen A. Holbrook and Tami Longaberger, chair of the Ohio State Board of Trustees.
