NEW (10-17-18) - The Forum scheduled for Oct. 18 is canceled. A new date will be announced.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, Cincinnati State will host a regional Faculty Forum sponsored by the Ohio Association of Community Colleges.

The Forum topic is "What Does Guided Pathways Mean for Ohio Faculty in the Classroom?"

The Forum takes place from 1:30-3:30 p.m., in the Conference Center, and is open to all College faculty and staff members.

If you can't attend the entire time, it's fine to come and go as your schedule allows.

The Forum facilitator is Dr. Rob Johnstone, Founder and President of the National Center for Inquiry and Improvement.

Dr. Johnstone served as a director, dean, and provost in the California community college system for more than a decade, and has worked with more than 350 colleges nationwide on projects and strategies to improve student learning and increase student completion, with "passion for improving lives and communities through a social justice and equity lens."

You can help OTA students attend their professional conference

Occupational Therapy Assistant students from Cincinnati State enjoyed attending educational seminars at the 2017 Annual Conference of the Occupational Therapy Association.

Members of the Student Occupational Therapy Association (SOTA) are conducting fundraising to help support the costs of attending the American Occupational Therapy Association's Annual Conference and Expo, taking place in New Orleans in early April 2019.

The OTA students hope you'll assist their efforts by purchasing Yankee Candles through the fundraising link www.yankeecandlefundraising.com, using their group number: 999983353. (You might need to scroll down to the "shopper" section of the page.)

The fundraising sale continues until early January, but you're welcome to start your shopping anytime.

Occupational Therapy Assistant Program Chair Claudia Miller said students who attend the national conference are able to meet theorists from the profession, learn about key topics in the field, and talk to prospective employers.

"For many students, attending the Conference inspires them with additional passion to complete their OTA degree at Cincinnati State," Claudia said. "Support from the College community to help students get to the Conference is greatly appreciated."
