INTERIM DEAN, OHIO UNIVERSITY CHILLICOTHE

Interim Dean Nicely

Alumni, Parents, and Friends:

OHIO Chillicothe has always provided a quality small campus setting that promotes student learning and scholarship. However, the campus must continue to seek ways to improve and your support is important for our future success and continued service to the community.

Your support of OHIO Chillicothe represents a sound investment based on our proven record of fiscal stewardship, excellent faculty and facilities, and the production of quality students who earn their college degrees at the Chillicothe campus. OHIO Chillicothe offers several Associate and Bachelor’s degree programs which offer numerous career opportunities. Most of our students are from the South-Central Ohio region and many remain in the area to become accomplished professionals and leaders in our communities.

As the first regional campus in the state, OHIO Chillicothe has established a legacy as a leader in higher education. For over 70 years, the Chillicothe campus’s mission has been to provide access to a quality education at an affordable price. The initiatives that are supported in this campaign will help to guarantee that the Chillicothe campus continues to offer the type of educational experience that prepares students from our region for satisfying careers and rewarding lives.

Recent achievements include the Academic Success Center project which upgraded our Student Success Center into a more welcoming space for our students and tutors, expanded student gathering and private study areas, and added a Media Room to develop videos, podcasts, etc.; the Parkway Project, which transformed the look of campus; the growth of the Stevenson Center, the student hub of the campus which houses the Learning Commons, the Student Success Center and our library and café; the 2012 opening of the Technology and Business Development Center; an increased number of endowed scholarships which make a quality education more accessible to students from our region.

By supporting, you help to ensure the continued success of our campus and the fulfillment of its mission to provide a quality education at an affordable price to the Chillicothe region and the population of South-Central Ohio.

There are several ways to give at various levels of contribution (see links on this page). Please contact Joyce Atwood at 740-774-7732 or atwoodj@ohio.edu to answer any of your questions.

Sincerely,

Dywayne Nicely, PhD
