Inter-University Council of Ohio Supports Governor DeWine’s Continued Investment
In Ohio’s Public Universities Through Release of Additional CARES Act Funding
[Columbus]: Bruce Johnson, president of the Inter-University Council of Ohio (IUC), issued the following statement today regarding Governor DeWine’s announcement of continued financial support to Ohio’s public universities through the release of additional CARES Act funding for critical services, including testing and mental health services.
“Ohio’s public universities greatly appreciate the Governor’s leadership today, and frankly his hard work every day, during this pandemic. The Governor’s allocation of $100 million will help to offset the challenging costs associated with de-densifying campus, disinfecting classrooms, COVID testing, and contact tracing. We look forward to continuing to provide world class educational opportunities to all Ohioans during these challenging times. We are fortunate to have great leaders who work together to make Ohio a better place.”
