​Statement by President Michael V. Drake on completion of the state budget

“It is inspiring to live and work in a state with such strong bipartisan support that values higher education. I applaud Governor Kasich, Speaker Rosenberger and Senate President Faber for their leadership and commitment. By increasing the State Share of Instruction and the Ohio College Opportunity Grant, the state's leaders ensure that we continue to make college affordable while still supporting world-class excellence in teaching and research.”
