Dean Tuck



As dean of the Chillicothe Campus, I welcome you and appreciate your interest in our campus. At Ohio University - Chillicothe (OUC), we are focused on helping students achieve their educational and career goals along with a fulfilling educational experience.


We take a student-focused approach in all that we do, and, accordingly, we take the success of our students seriously. This personalized approach distinguishes the Chillicothe Campus as a place where students can realize their potential as part of a learning community. OUC students often remark about the willingness of faculty members to meet with them after class and how professors 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, OUC maintains modern educational facilities to enhance learning experience as well as a variety of extracurricular programs and organizations to help you enjoy a complete college experience while a student on our campus.

Whether you are straight out of high school or you have been out of the classroom for a few years, you will find a supportive environment and the opportunity to interact with other students in similar circumstances. In fact, with its mix of traditional and non-traditional students, classroom discussions at OUC are especially spirited as students offer a range of viewpoints and 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 University - Chillicothe offers the best of both worlds for its students.

At Chillicothe, we offer academic programs that help students realize their promise and find the right career path. Further, upon completion of their academic programs, OUC students earn an Ohio University diploma that is widely recognized and respected.


I invite you to visit and experience the Chillicothe Campus for yourself. As the first regional campus in the state, OUC has established a legacy as a leader in higher education. 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.
