LCCC President Marcia Ballinger Named Co-Chair of the Ohio Articulation & Transfer Network

Lorain County Community College President Marcia J. Ballinger, Ph.D., will continue to play a key role in increasing the number of Ohio residents who earn college degrees.

Ballinger has been named a co-chair of the Ohio Articulation & Transfer Network and a co-chair of the new Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways Statewide Steering Committee. Both the OATN and the steering committee are part of the Ohio Department of Higher Education. Bowling Green State University President Mary Ellen Mazey, Ph.D., will also co-chair the network and committee. Ballinger and Mazey will also serve on the OATN Oversight Board as members.

“This is a great opportunity for closer collaboration between our public two- and four-year institutions so that all Ohio students, including those who are under-resourced and underserved, have a clear and affordable pathway to a bachelor’s degree and a well-paying job,” Ballinger said.

The Ohio Department of Higher Education has set a goal that by 2025 at least 65 percent of Ohio’s adults will have a college degree or other postsecondary credential. The Ohio Guaranteed Transfer Pathways Statewide Steering Committee will oversee the development and implementation of guaranteed transfer pathways from two-year to four-year degree programs in an equivalent field. The effort is directly related to Ohio’s initiatives in college affordability and degree completion.

LCCC has transfer and articulation agreements with many Ohio universities, including 12 universities with programs in LCCC’s University Partnership. LCCC’s MyUniversity program includes partnership with local high school schools that allow students to earn college credit and begin a pathway to earn a bachelor’s degree through LCCC’s University Partnership by the age of 20.
