A virtual information session for the Education Public Policy Leadership Certificate (EPPLC) will take place at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, June 23.

This live session will be delivered using Microsoft Teams and will give attendees the opportunity to have their questions answered by Program Coordinator Dwan Robinson and other EPPLC faculty, as well as team members and alumni. Register here or email epplc@ohio.edu.

The EPPLC is a one-year graduate-level online certificate that is offered by The Patton College of Education in partnership with the Voinovich School of Leadership and Public Affairs. This is the second year for this unique program that combines online study with a culminating three-day networking residency in Washington, D.C., where participants engage in hands-on advocacy for the education policy they studied. Read about the inaugural cohort's residency experience.

The application deadline to join the second EPPLC cohort is June 30 and online classes begin July 13. No GRE is required and OHIO employees can use the university’s educational benefit to cover the cost of coursework.

In addition, an informational webinar for the Master’s of Coaching Education online programs – coaching education, soccer, and professional tennis management – will be held at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 24. Register here.

This is the first year for the Professional Tennis Management program, which is a collaborative effort with USTA-U, the education division of the United States Tennis Association.
