Central State University. Its Unique Role: In Retrospect, In Prospect.
Central State Univ., Wilberforce, OH.
After a devastating tornado, a firm commitment was made to rebuild Central State University. As a college, its mission was to provide teacher training, to develop technical programs, and to stabilize these programs for minority students. In 1965, Central State was granted university status. The Central State University is plagued by two issues: (1) closing or merging with neighboring institutions, and (2) inequities in the procedures for allocating State subsidy to the university. Despite its problems, Central State University has provided the state of Ohio with outstanding graduates who contribute their skills and talents in positions that range across the economic and professional spectrum. Recommendations of this report are addressed to the university administration, faculty, students, alumni, the board of regents, and the Ohio general assembly. The recurring theme is that existing resources must be maximized not only internally but externally as well. Development of creative programs that attract students across various sectors is necessary. Efforts need to be exerted to demonstrate the university's ability to work cooperatively with other institutions to develop stronger programs, and to promote planned educational seminars and student support programs. Appendixes include financial data and appropriations, enrollment figures, and staff biographies. (Author/PG)
