Welcome from the Dean

Roberta Milliken

     As Dean of the Campus and Community Relations at Ohio University Chillicothe, I want to welcome you to our campus. We realize that students have many choices these days when it comes to furthering their education. We believe OHIO Chillicothe stands out from the rest by offering a dynamic educational experience in a friendly, engaging, and accessible setting. On the Chillicothe campus, our motto is “Serving our students and serving our region.” More than just a slogan, this is our commitment to offer a great educational experience that brings students to their promise and their potential.

    Our campus, services, and classes provide a student-centered experience. This personal approach distinguishes OHIO Chillicothe, as students regularly note that their professors are eager to help them and take a vested interest in their success. There is no “getting lost in a crowd” at OHIO Chillicothe. We work hard to get to know students so that we can properly support and guide them toward achieving their goals. Indeed, we pride ourselves on this kind of personalized attention. On our campus we recognize that every student is unique, so whether students are recent high school graduates or those who have been out of the classroom for several years, they will find a supportive environment built and dedicated to helping them succeed.

     The wide-variety of academic programs that we offer at OHIO Chillicothe helps lead students to meaningful and in-demand careers. This is another distinguishing feature of our campus. Students not only learn from prominent faculty who are committed to helping them succeed academically, they also gain valuable experiences that help them excel in their professions after graduation. Because we recognize that students often have other responsibilities, we have devised several modes of course delivery—from fully online offerings, to hybrid courses that offer both online and in-person opportunities, and finally to standard face-to-face classes. Moreover, our healthy mix of traditional students and adult learners enriches interactions at OHIO Chillicothe, for the diverse student body ensures an interesting and wide-ranging exchange of viewpoints.

     In addition to an excellent faculty and staff committed to student success, OHIO Chillicothe maintains modern and up-to-date instructional facilities that enhance individual and group learning. We also offer a variety of extracurricular programs and student organizations to provide a fulsome collegiate experience for our students. With both that close-knit sense of community found on many smaller campuses and the resources of a great national university, Ohio University Chillicothe offers the best of both worlds to our students. Upon completion of their academic programs of study, OHIO Chillicothe students earn an Ohio University diploma that is broadly recognized and respected, both regionally and nationally.

     I invite you to visit and experience for yourself what OHIO Chillicothe has to offer. As the first regional campus in the state of Ohio, we have an established legacy of leadership in regional higher education. I am confident we can help you find the right academic program that will lead to a fulfilling career path, self growth, and the mastery of dynamic skills needed in our world today. If I can be of further assistance to you, please do not hesitate to contact me.
