The Youngstown Vindicator says former Ohio Governor Ted Strickland will run for the Senate next year.
Strickland Looks to Establish Statewide University System
Governor Strickland today asked Board of Regents Chancellor Eric Fingerhut to set up a collaboration among public colleges and universities in Ohio.
The University System of Ohio will include 13 public universities, 23 public two-year colleges, the Northeastern Ohio Universities College of Medicine and several adult career centers.
Strickland says he wants a 10-year plan developed to set benchmarks and timelines for higher education.
The governor says the new system will create what he calls a “new, Ohio birthright access for every Ohioan to an affordable, world class higher education.”
