Mount Union Named to Top 50 National Colleges
Washington Monthly's 2015 national rankings listed the University of Mount Union among its top 12% baccalaureate colleges. Rankings were based  on a school's "contribution to the public good in three broad categories: Social Mobility (recruiting and graduating low-income students); Research (producing cutting-edge scholarship and PhDs); and Service (encouraging students to give something back to their country)."

Stark was First to Support Graduate Coursework for High School Teachers to Become College Adjuncts

Proposals for Ohio's new  Teacher Credentialing Grant Program [1] are due in Columbus today.

Pathway One of that new program, established under Am. Sub H.B. No. 64[2], supports graduate coursework to qualify high school teachers as college adjuncts. Under Ohio's College Credit Plus Program, teachers must have a master's degree in the subject area taught, or any master's plus 18 hours of graduate coursework in that area, to teach college courses. While new to the state, the concept of supporting graduate coursework for teachers is not new to Stark.

In 2007, with a $113,000 grant from TG, the Stark Education Partnership and Stark County Educational Service Center partnered to financially support over 40 teachers obtaining necessary graduate coursework. The then pioneering program[3] helped support the rapid growth of dual credit at Stark's high schools.

Today, the Stark County ESC and affiliated districts continued the tradition of seeking grants that develop teacher content expertise by submitting a new credentialing grant proposal with Kent State University and Kent State Stark as partners.
