DAYTON — At its May meeting, the Executive Committee of the Board of Trustees of the Southwestern Ohio Council for Higher Education (SOCHE) voted unanimously to extend Dr. Sean Creighton’s contract for three years, and also changed his title to that of president.
They felt the title of president more adequately reflected the nature of Creighton’s position and how he has grown SOCHE over the last ten years.
“The committee expressed its affirmation of Sean’s outstanding leadership and appreciation for the innovation that he employs in extending the reach and influence of SOCHE and the support of our member institutions in the region,” said Dr. Kevin Boys, chair of the SOCHE board.
In response to the new agreement Creighton said, “I’m honored to remain a key part of SOCHE’s future and am dedicated to working with my outstanding team and members on remaining innovative. We are fortunate to have so many incredible colleges and universities in our region and, as a result, SOCHE is maturing into a national exemplar for higher education collaboration.”
Founded in 1967, SOCHE is the collaborative infrastructure for higher education, helping colleges and universities transform their communities and economies through the education, employment, and engagement of more than 120,000 students in southwest Ohio.
SOCHE’s members include: Air Force Institute of Technology (ex-officio), Antioch College, Antioch University Midwest, Cedarville University, Central Michigan University, Central State University, Cincinnati State (Middletown Campus), Clark State Community College, Edison Community College, Kettering College, Kettering Foundation, Miami University Regionals, Sinclair Community College, Southern State Community College, Union Institute & University, United Theological Seminary, University of Dayton, Urbana University, Wilberforce University, Wilmington College, Wittenberg University, and Wright State University.
