During her tenure at OSU, Adams-Gaston furthered the institution’s approach to the comprehensive student experience, co-curricular plan and involvement opportunities, such as the nationally recognized Second-year Transformational Experience Program (STEP), according to an Ohio State news release.

Since she began her post in 2009, the total student organizations have increased from 993 to 1,381, and 81 percent of undergraduate students are currently involved in some form of student activity.

“My time at Ohio State has been some of the most rewarding of my career,” Adams-Gaston said. “It has been an honor to be a part of the lives of thousands of Buckeyes and to help craft a co-curricular experience that is challenging, supportive and transformative.”

“Our students are the heart of our university, and the work of Javaune and her team has focused on supporting Buckeyes for a decade,” said Ohio State president Dr. Michael V. Drake. “We will all miss Dr. J and wish her the very best in her new and exciting opportunity.”
