Strategic Plan for Higher Education, 2008-2017
Fingerhut, Eric D.
Ohio Board of Regents
If the State of Ohio is to grow and prosper, it must raise the education level of its population. The goal of this 10-year strategic plan is to raise the educational attainment of the state each year, and to close the gap between Ohio and competitor states and nations. To accomplish this goal, stakeholders must do three things: (1) Graduate more students; (2) Keep more graduates in Ohio; and (3) Attract more degree holders from out of state. Meeting the goal of this plan will require mobilizing Ohio's extensive network of public universities and community colleges--the University System of Ohio--and a diverse collection of independent colleges and universities. The University System of Ohio consists of the state's 13 public university campuses, one medical college, 24 regional branch campuses, and 23 community colleges, as well as adult literacy and adult workforce centers. Through a combination of strategies, the University System of Ohio will become a high-quality, flexible system of higher education that offers a wide range of educational options, while driving down the average amount that students pay to among the lowest in the nation. Appendices include: (1) Legislative and Executive Mandates; (2) BAHEE/BRT Letter; and (3) Expected versus Actual Graduation Rates. (Contains 24 endnotes.) [For the executive summary, see ED510218.]
