For forty years, The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College have shared the Newark regional campus, its land, its buildings and its people, in a partnership of fiscal efficiency and collaborative campus planning. The partnership is at the forefront of daily operations and long term planning, and is a recognized model of shared services and resources. The institutions’ leaders set forth a vision almost fifty years ago; today our leaders share a vision for campus development for the next fifty years. This joint vision is rooted in the long-standing institutional partnership and in the opportunities it presents for the future.
In 2012, the two institutions drafted a Newark Campus Framework Plan. This collaborative plan is designed to guide decision making and physical change over the next 50 years, ensuring the academic missions of each institution drive the physical environment. It provides a holistic approach by integrating academic, physical and financial planning as we build toward our long-term vision for the campus. The plan gives us a toolbox of resources which will allow our two institutions to be flexible in a time of change and to encourage fiscal responsibility across the institutions.

The greyscale bar displays the scores (in quartiles) of all institutions rated under this version of STARS that are the same basic type as the institution featured in the report (e.g., Associate, Baccalaureate, Doctoral, or Master’s). Hovering over the bar reveals the following:
- 1st quartile score (75% of institutions scored above this figure)
- Median (or 2nd quartile) score (50% of institutions scored above this figure)
- 3rd quartile score (25% of institutions scored above this figure)
