Creating the blueprint for a successful future
The Heritage College is engaged in several overlapping strategic initiatives aimed at planfully guiding us toward our goals. Explore what's driving us forward.
In fiscal year 2013-14, the Heritage College strategic planning process brought the college community together, which focused our growth and renewal efforts. The plan that emerged from this process provides a strategic road map as we develop new campuses, advance our research and community care programs, and strengthen the curriculum and programs at our clinical campus sites.
Campus Master Plan
The 2016 Ohio University Comprehensive Master Plan envisions three new buildings for the Heritage College by 2019, all providing easy access to OhioHealth O'Bleness Hospital and the main university campus.
Osteopathic Heritage Foundation Award
In 2011, the Osteopathic Heritage Foundation (OHF) approved a $105 million Vision 2020 award titled: Vision 2020: Leading the Transformation of Primary Care in Ohio , to transform the Ohio University Heritage College of Osteopathic Medicine (Heritage 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.
