Ohio State Mansfield leadership update

Dear Colleagues,

We are pleased to share with you that Eric Anderman has agreed to extend his term as interim dean and director of The Ohio State University at Mansfield until June 30, 2024.

We have a deep commitment to the success of each regional campus. Over the past six months, we have worked with regional campus leaders to develop strategies to identify future priorities. At the same time, individuals and/or units from each campus have worked to strengthen student recruitment and enrollment; enhance high-impact practices for student education; align functional support areas across campuses, including human resources and now business and finance; and expand course offerings through an online pilot program with the College of Arts and Sciences.

We look forward to your engagement and Eric’s leadership of these important initiatives.

We share our sincere thanks for all that you continue to do as we work together to strengthen opportunities for our Mansfield campus students, faculty, staff, and community members.
