Message From The Dean: Winter 2019
We are proud to say we hosted the Ohio Latino Education Summit this November at Kent State University for the first time in history, and set a new record for registration and attendance with over 600 participants. We are proud to have a new fully online Ed.D. in Interprofessional Leadership approved and look forward to welcoming our first cohort of students in Summer 2020. An additional area of pride is the work we have done in improving first-year retention. Our retention rate was 83.5% this Fall which constitutes a 3.1% improvement over the past two years. This is a reflection of the great work of our faculty and staff, as well as the increased scholarship support from our wonderful donors. Speaking of donors, we set a new record in fundraising this past academic year of $2.7 million in philanthropic support. These are just a few of the countless accomplishments in our college.
May your holidays and New Year be filled with joy and happiness. I look forward to all of us working together to make 2020 the best year ever for EHHS!
