Ohio Board of Regents
The Ohio Board of Regents has prepared this document to provide detailed but easy to use information about higher education and the role that it plays in shaping Ohio's economy. The document tries to anticipate questions that might be asked of policymakers by their constituents. Information needed by policymakers to answer those questions, has been assembled by gathering data from a variety of well documented sources. Ohio's higher education community is comprised of more than 150 degree-granting colleges and universities, including 38 public colleges and universities that are individually governed by their own boards of trustees. Ohio's public colleges and universities enroll more than 449,000 students; more than 127,000 enroll in independent colleges and universities. This document is divided into three primary areas--higher education, Ohio's economy, and the benefits of advanced learning. At the beginning of each section, key points summarize and highlight significant facts of the section. Each section's content offers statistics and facts, as well as sources to use for more in-depth research. An index and customer satisfaction survey are also included.
