Lancaster Coordinating Council
The Ohio University Lancaster Coordinating Council is comprised of residents of the community served by the campus. Appointments to the Council are for a period of three (3) years, with reappointment possible for a maximum of three terms. In addition to community members, the campus appoints two student representatives to the council who serve a two (2) year term. The Council meets 3 times a year typically during Fall and Spring semesters.
The general and essential function of the Council is to ensure, for the University and the regional communities they serve, that there exist opportunities for sharing of information and exchange of viewpoints and ideas between members of the communities and the appropriate University officials.
