OHIO Southern, regional campuses featured in OhioToday article

OHIO Southern and Ohio University’s other regional campuses were recently featured in an article by OhioToday. The article highlighted the One OHIO strategic initiative and how, for the first time, the University is operating as a unified university system, leveraging the full power of its network and cultivating an ecosystem that better serves its students and mission.

The article also examines how OHIO has been tying its academics to the needs of the communities it serves. At OHIO Southern specifically, the undergraduate social work program has seen significant growth due to local agencies’ need to find qualified employees.

“I think we’ve had 80 people graduate with bachelor’s in social work degrees in the time I’ve been here—and the majority of them have stayed in this area,” said Dr. Glenn Abraham, assistant professor of social work. “If we had talked to them five years ago, some of them would have never seen themselves going to college. We truly are providing our students an opportunity to excel in their lives.”
