On February 18, 1804, the Ohio General Assembly approved the charter plans to establish Ohio University.
Over the last 219 years, Ohio University has served as a leader in higher education. Our great institution has seen many changes, but we remain dedicated to serving our students and our region.
As we celebrate another birthday, I want to thank the members of the Ohio University community. Each of you help to make Ohio University the special place that it is today.
Thank you for the ways you support one another. Thank you for the ways that you advance research and creative activity. And thank you for the positive ways you are impacting the world.
Happy Founders Day and Happy Birthday. This is truly old OHIO’s Day!
Hugh Sherman, President
