Spring Semester Welcome From The Dean
Dear Students of The Patton College of Education,
Welcome Back! I hope the beginning of your Spring Semester has gone smoothly and that you have successfully made the transition from holiday break to academic engagement once again. I am pleased you are back at The Patton College and will continue focusing on your education and your future success.
Important items to note: The second annual Patton Party will be Wednesday, February 4, as part of the OHIO vs. Akron basketball game. We will have pizza and drinks at 5:30 in the Convo prior to the 7:00 tip-off. Students get in free. Please attend so we can show we are OHIO Proud and Patton Proud!
The 2015 Student Research & Creative Activity Expo is Thursday, April 9 from 11:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. at the Convocation Center. Registration is open through February 27. I’d love to see many Patton College students enter. For more info, click here.

The 2014-15 academic year marks our final year in the current McCracken Hall, which will undergo a $31.8-million renovation project next June. While our building may change, our goals will not. Once again, our theme for this academic year is: Advocate, Unite, and Inspire!
We advocate for educational and community-centered goals and initiatives that align with our mission, vision, and values; we unite to achieve positive academic and community-focused outcomes; we seek to inspire you -- our students -- to take up the cause to help bring about the change you wish to see in the world.
Yes, as the times change, so do we. But we remain – now and always – true to our principles. We are CALLED to Lead!
Remember, we are a diverse community at The Patton College. We have future educators and human service professionals sharing the halls through graduation in May. We are proud of who we are, and eager to share it with the rest of Ohio University. We are OHIO Proud and Patton Proud.
The Spring Semester brings with it the best of the old and the promise of the new. Let’s get out there and do great things!

Rural / Urban Collaborative (RUC) Participants
One core value of The Patton College of Education is embracing diversity. The RUC is a manifestation of that value. It is intended to best prepare future educators by fostering a deeper awareness of how to examine, understand and assess a variety of cultural experiences and issues based on gender, race, social class and geographic locality. Because we so highly value this experience, The Patton College of Education is granting a $25 travel award to those students who are incurring higher travel costs. If you are eligible for this travel award, it will be credited to your student account before the end of the semester. Should you have questions, please contact Brenda Robinson email@example.com .
Beginning January 1, 2015 The Patton College of Education will no longer maintain copies of background checks. Please retain a copy for your records.
