Planning and Priorities
Creating the blueprint for a successful future
Our strategic initiatives are planfully guiding us toward our goals. Explore what's driving us forward.
Our 2018-2021 Heritage College Strategic Plan acts as a road map to guide us to critical milestones over the next three years, positioning us for even greater success over the next 10 years.
Two major initiatives launch in August 2018. Our new curricula are designed to keep pace with changes in health care delivery and meet the needs of students, patients, health systems and communities.
New Medical Education Facilities in Athens
The Heritage College is working with Ohio University to plan a new $65 million academic home for our Athens campus that will anchor the university’s future Union Street Green.
Osteopathic Heritage Foundation Award
In 2011, the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation approved a $105 million award, Vision 2020: Leading the Transformation of Primary Care in Ohio, to transform our college into a nationally prominent institution that trains primary care physicians to serve the rural and underserved areas in Ohio.
In May 2014, the Heritage College launched a multiplatform initiative to advance its research strategy. The initiative involved gathered data from faculty/staff surveys, focus groups, message boards, strategy planning meetings, and all-faculty forums and led to many significant milestones for the college.
