BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF THE COLLECTION

In an effort to establish an all encompassing statewide higher education association, OCHEA was formed in 1983 by the merger of two pre-existing Ohio groups, the Ohio Continuing Education Council (OCEC) composed of two year colleges, and the Ohio Council on Higher Continuing Education (OCHCE) composed of four year public institutions.
