Robert P. Comer Education Conference

The Robert P. Comer Spring Education Conference is held each year on the Athens campus of Ohio University.

On March 2, 2007, The Gladys W. and David H. Patton College of Education Dean Renée A. Middleton gave the conference keynote address in the NEW Baker University Center Ballroom. Participants then broke into smaller seminar sessions to discuss career issues specific to their majors. Current students were able to benefit from the wisdom and professional advice of our alumni.
