Higher Education Leaders Gathering to Sign Northeast Ohio Regional Higher Education Compact
Consortium Forms to Enhance Educational Opportunities and Support Regional Workforce
Presidents from nine public colleges and universities in Northeast Ohio are gathering to sign a Consortium Agreement to improve and strengthen educational offerings, provide collaborative pathways to degrees and support the region’s workforce.
The agreement — known as the Northeast Ohio Regional Higher Education Compact — is comprised of Cleveland State University, Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®), Kent State University, Lakeland Community College, Lorain County Community College, Northeast Ohio Medical University, Stark State College, the University of Akron and Youngstown State University.
The compact strives to create pathways from K-12 to higher education while lowering the overall cost of pursuing a degree in the Northeast Ohio region through high-quality educational offerings.
Presidents from the institutions will meet at Cuyahoga Community College’s Jerry Sue Thornton Center at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, June 27, for the official signing of the agreement.
