Ohio State University Board of Trustees officially names new cancer hospital

Columbus, Ohio – On the day of the dedication of the new 21-story cancer hospital, The Ohio State University Board of Trustees officially named the new building as The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute. The new James Cancer Hospital, which will open in December, is the newest and one of the largest cancer hospitals in the nation.

In addition, the board approved a variety of personnel, academic and fiscal matters at its meeting on Friday, Nov. 7.

Mid-autumn semester break established
Trustees approved a change to the autumn semester calendar that provides a four-day weekend break – with Thursday and Friday added to the weekend between the two autumn sessions. The extended weekend does not diminish the current number of instructional days. Autumn semester will begin one day earlier and extend one day later.

Buildings named
The board approved the naming of the new building located at 460 W. Tenth Ave. as The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center - Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute (OSUCCC - James).

Trustees also approved the naming of the new building located at 151 W. Woodruff Ave. as the Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and Chemistry (CBEC) Building.

Buildings renamed
The board approved the renaming of the former Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute of the Wexner Medical Center as 300 W. Tenth Ave. The former cancer hospital is targeted for renovation and repurposing as part of future Wexner Medical Center plans.

Trustees also approved the renaming of Joseph H. Koffolt Laboratories as 140 W. 19th Ave. The new CBEC Building will open to students in January 2015. The former Koffolt Laboratories building, along with neighboring Fontana Laboratories, is targeted for renovation and repurposing as part of future plans for that district, with work beginning as soon as fiscal year 2017.

New degree established
Trustees approved the establishment of a Master of Quantitative Risk Management Degree in the Department of Mathematics, College of Arts and Sciences. The new program responds to an increasing demand by employers in both public and private sectors for graduates with knowledge and skills in actuarial and quantitative risk management, and the need for both academic research and industrial practice.

Department name changed
The board approved changing the name of the Department of Otolaryngology to the Department of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery, College of Medicine. The new name better recognizes all areas of the department and is representative of the mission and scope of the work that this department does. It also is the title used by peer institutions and by the American Academy of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery.

State law provisions adopted
Trustees agreed to adopt the provisions of Amended Substitute House Bill 488, which requires state-supported institutions in Ohio to support veterans as they pursue advanced degrees. In response, the university has established “Valuing Our Veterans: Support & Assistance Interim Policy” which sets forth the ways that support and assistance will be provided to service members and veterans.

There are currently over 2,200 veterans and family members receiving benefits who are studying at Ohio State. Ohio State'sOffice of Military and Veterans Services assists students with educational and academic resources. The office provides military and veteran orientations, focused academic counseling, tailored support services and the education of faculty and staff on military student issues.
Ohio State’s strong support of military and veteran students continues to receive national recognition. The university is fifth nationally in U.S. News & World Report’s Best Colleges for Veterans ranking. Military Times magazine calls Ohio State one of the most veteran-friendly universities in the country, and G.I. Jobs magazine has named Ohio State one of the country’s top "Military Friendly Schools" for six consecutive years. 

Foundation report accepted
The board accepted The Ohio State University Foundation report as of Sept. 30, 2014, which includes the establishment of the Dr. Gary G. Koch and Mrs. Carolyn J. Koch Fellowship in the Interdisciplinary Ph.D. Program in Biostatistics; six endowed scholarships as part of the Ohio Scholarship Challenge: The Mariana and George S.

The revised focus of the center addresses a shortage of coordinated care as pediatric patients with ASD transition to adulthood.
