As dean of OHIO Chillicothe, I welcome you to our campus and appreciate the interest that you have in our institution. At OHIO Chillicothe, we are focused on helping students achieve their educational and career goals along with a fulfilling educational experience.

We take a student-centered approach in everything that we do, and, consequently, we take the success of our students seriously. This personal approach distinguishes the Chillicothe campus as a place where students can realize their potential as part of a learning ecosystem. OHIO Chillicothe students often remark about how professors are very willing to help them and take a vested interest in their success. We pride ourselves on this type of personalized attention.

In addition to excellent faculty and staff members who are committed to your success, OHIO Chillicothe maintains modern educational facilities to enhance your learning experience as well as offering a variety of extracurricular programs and organizations to enhance the enjoyment of the collegiate experience while a student on our campus.

Whether you are fresh out of high school or you have been out of the classroom for several years, you will find a supportive environment and the opportunity to interact with other students with similar backgrounds and circumstances. In fact, with its mix of traditional students and adult learners, classroom discussions at OHIO Chillicothe are especially spirited as students offer a wide range of viewpoints when sharing their experiences.

With the close-knit sense of a community most often found on a small campus and the resources of a great national university, OHIO Chillicothe offers the best of both worlds for our students.

We offer academic programs that help students realize their promise and find the right career path. Furthermore, upon completion of their academic programs, OHIO Chillicothe students earn an Ohio University diploma that is broadly recognized and respected.

On the Chillicothe campus, our motto is “Serving our students and serving our region.” More than just a slogan, it’s a commitment to offering the type of educational experience that helps our students realize their promise and potential.
