2016 Roads Scholars Tour Explores Northwest Ohio

2016 Roads Scholars Tour

The Roads Scholars Tour, a two-day, traveling seminar that included President Drake and Provost McPheron, took more than 50 faculty, staff and community partners to northwest Ohio on July 14-15 to tour sites where the university has key partnerships. Participants viewed first-hand the reach and impact that engaged teaching and research collaborations have on communities and residents across the state. The Buckeye Bus, sponsored by the Office of Student Life, also toured the region and joined the Roads Scholars Tour at several stops. University Advancement hosted an evening event for alumni and friends in the region as part of our stop at the Toledo Zoo.
