Ashland University to Receive State Funding for Three Projects

Ashland University will receive approximately $3.4 million dollars from the state of Ohio in support of educational programs that address Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine’s priorities. The funding will support Ashland University’s Center for Addictions, its Correctional Education programming and construction of The Jack Liebert Military & Veterans Resource Center.

In Gov. DeWine’s public inauguration address on Jan. 14, he stated, “Education is the key to equality and to opportunity.” DeWine noted his top priorities include the opioid crisis, protection of children and families, and service to veterans. All three of Ashland University’s proposals aligned with the governor’s vision for the state, and each will serve the region as well as the University. “These are important programs that will provide critical services,” said Senate President Larry Obhof. “I am proud of the work that we did in the Senate to fund these programs right here in the 22nd District.”
