Chancellor lauds OHIO, others
Fingerhut commends institutions for increasing affordability, access  

Apr 17, 2009  

In testimony to the Senate Finance and Financial Institutions Committee at the Ohio Statehouse Wednesday, Chancellor Eric Fingerhut highlighted Ohio University on its progress toward increasing access and affordability in higher education.

Fingerhut spoke to the committee about the higher education sections of the state's proposed fiscal year 2010-11 biennial budget.

Among other things, he noted that Ohio University, Kent State University, Miami University and Bowling Green State University have all added new bachelor's degrees at their regional campuses, a development that he said would increase access for the state's students.

He also noted that partnerships between two- and four-year institutions will allow any Ohioans to get an associate's or bachelor's degree at an institution within 30 miles of their home, a plan the University System of Ohio hopes to expand.

"You can get a degree from Ohio University at Columbus State Community College, or from Bowling Green at Terra Community College, or from Kent State at Lakeland Community College and many more. And this is not to mention the extensive partnerships with private institutions at each of these institutions," he said.
