The Central Ohio Compact
Dr. Harrison convened a regional summit on college access & success to bring together leaders from higher education, k-12 education and the community to discuss student success in Central Ohio. The first summit was held in May 2011, and three summits have been held so far.
The summits led to the formation of the Central Ohio Compact, a consortium of educational leaders to address these issues.
