The State of Higher Education in Ohio: 2021 Year in Review
Ohio Department of Higher Education
It has been three years since Mike DeWine was sworn in to serve as Ohio's 70th governor, joined by Jon Husted as lieutenant governor. From the very beginning, Governor DeWine requested that his Cabinet listen carefully to the people of the state and then proceed to act with a sense of urgency to strengthen and improve the great state of Ohio. This document provides a brief summary of what the DeWine-Husted Administration--and the Department of Higher Education--has accomplished in its first three years leading Ohio. While some may characterize 2021 as another year of anxiety, uncertainty, and crisis, Ohio pushed forward with higher education and workforce preparation reforms that are enhancing opportunity in the state. With support from the Ohio General Assembly, direct support for need-based financial aid and the Choose Ohio First STEM scholarship program were increased; flexible short-term certificates at community colleges and technical centers were provided; and the first-ever college campus safety grant program was funded. These and other initiatives are highlighted in this report. [For the 2020 report, see ED612372.]
