U.S. Representative Pat Tiberi Makes Visit to Campus


U.S. Representative Pat Tiberi (R-OH) will be speaking at The Ohio State University on Friday, March 31, beginning at 12:10 p.m. This Congressional Conversations event is a joint initiative of the Moritz College of Law and John Glenn College of Public Affairs. It will be held in Saxbe Auditorium, located inside Drinko Hall, 55 W. 12th Ave.

Congressman Tiberi is a lifelong resident of Central Ohio. He was first elected to represent Ohio‘s 12th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives in November 2000. The 12th District is made up of Delaware, Licking, and Morrow counties as well as portions of Franklin, Marion, Muskingum, and Richland counties. Tiberi currently sits on the House’s Ways and Means Committee, which has given him the opportunity to influence issues like taxes, Social Security, Medicare, trade, and health care. He serves as chairman of the Subcommittee on Health and is a member of the Tax Policy Subcommittee as well. Tiberi additionally serves as chairman of the Joint Economic Committee, which looks at economic conditions and recommends improvements to economic policy. In the past he chaired the Tax Policy Subcommittee and the Subcommittee on Trade. Tiberi holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from The Ohio State University, where he was a member of the world renowned marching band. Prior to his election to the U.S. House of Representatives he served as an aide to then-Congressman John Kasich before joining the Ohio Legislature where he eventually rose to the position of majority leader.

Congressional Conversations brings prominent federal legislators to Ohio State on a regular basis. Discussions focus not on the day’s partisan talking points, but rather on improving legislative process and American governance, public policy, and public service. Students have an opportunity to engage with and learn from legislative leaders. Most semesters the series hosts two conversations.

Advanced registration is required and seating is limited and will be made available based on date and time registered. This event is likely to fill up and interested faculty, staff, students, and friends should register early.



Please note the University’s “no shout out” policy is in effect for all Congressional Conversation events.


Thank you for attending this program. The Ohio State University strives to create a truly open forum in which diverse opinions can be expressed and heard.

It is the right of members of the University community and invited guests to express their views and opinions at the University. We will protect the rights of individuals to speak, and the rights of those members of the University community who wish to hear and communicate with an invited speaker.

Protesters also have a right to express their opposition to a speaker in appropriate ways, both within the confines of this building and outside the facility. However, protesters must not interfere unduly with communication between a speaker and members of the audience. If the hosts of this event or University representatives believe that protesters are interfering unduly with a speaker’s freedom of expression, those protesters will be warned. If the warnings are not heeded and the interference continues, then the individuals responsible may be removed from the building.
