The university will welcome Jamie Dimon, chairman and CEO of JPMorgan Chase, as spring commencement speaker. Mr. Dimon’s remarks will be delivered virtually.

In addition to employing tens of thousands in central Ohio, JPMorgan Chase recruits more than 100 interns and 90 full-time hires annually from Ohio State and employs more than 3,000 Ohio State alumni. JPMorgan Chase previously partnered with Ohio State to invest $2.5 million to support and promote academic excellence for students from diverse backgrounds. This is an extension of Mr. Dimon’s work leading a variety of initiatives to support a diverse and inclusive culture within JPMorgan Chase and throughout communities served by the bank.
