Voinovich School hosts Scholars Forum at historic estate in Ft. Myers, Florida


Leaders and scholars from three Ohio University units met at the historic Edison & Ford Winter Estates in Ft. Myers, Florida, for the Voinovich School of Leadership & Public Affairs’ Scholars Forum, an event that focused on the convergence of technology, entrepreneurship and innovation at Ohio University.  

OHIO alumni and friends enjoyed a pre-luncheon tour of the estate, which includes 20 acres of historic buildings and gardens, the Edison Botanic Research Lab and the Edison Ford Museum. The luncheon featured presentations by representatives from OHIO’s Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs, the Scripps College of Communication, and the College of Business. 

OHIO Visiting Professor of Leadership and Public Affairs George V. Voinovich, Director Mark Weinberg and Lynn Gellermann of the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs joined College of Business Dean Hugh Sherman, Scripps College of Communication’s Dean Scott Titsworth and Scripps Visiting Professional Andrew Alexander to speak about the importance of supporting new technology, entrepreneurship and innovation at Ohio University as a way to promote job growth and wealth in southeast Ohio.

“Of all the accolades I’ve been fortunate to receive during my years in public service, none means more to me than the establishment of the Voinovich School,” said Senator Voinovich. “The Voinovich School is a ‘do tank’ instead of a ‘think tank.’ Our partnerships with units across the University has enabled us to come together to get things done.”
