Chancellor unveils 10-year master plan for higher education

A year ago this month, a new Ohio Board of Regents chancellor was appointed by the governor, and the Ohio General Assembly was charged with developing a 10-year, statewide master plan for Ohio’s public two-year and four-year colleges and universities. Today, after a yearlong process of discussion, deliberation and planning with higher education leaders, the business community, and other state and national constituencies, Chancellor Eric Fingerhut will submit his master plan to the governor and General Assembly.   

Pathway to the plan

In August 2007, Gov. Ted Strickland issued an executive order that created the new “University System of Ohio,” a statewide higher education system that includes 13 public universities, one medical college, and 23 technical and community colleges. The governor stated that his goals in creating the new college and university system were to increase access and affordability at Ohio’s public higher education institutions, emphasizing that the educational attainment level and quality of the state’s work force are critical factors in Ohio’s economic development. Fingerhut has said that the educational attainment level of Ohio’s work force is the most important goal and the core element of his recommended master plan.
