OCU Assisted with Summer Institute for Teachers image

The 2019 Summer Institute took place on June 3-7. The Ohio Christian University Teacher Education Department partnered with Circleville City Schools, Pickaway County Board of Developmental Disabilities, and Pickaway County ESC to design an institute that would benefit many educators.

The Ohio Christian University Teacher Education Department believes in providing excellent and effective professional development for the teachers and the school districts they work with and beyond. They were excited with the new partnerships formed this summer and are looking forward to next summer and offering more courses.

Thanksgiving for Students on Campus

Published: November 21, 2017

One OCU student, Clarissa Crowley, has taken initiative to organize a Thanksgiving dinner and remembrance celebration for students remaining on campus over the holiday. Crowley plans a 'ceremonial' observance of this traditional holiday that includes passing a thanksgiving card to each person at the table.  Each participant holding the card will describe a person, place, and experience from the past year for which they are particularly thankful.  This practice is a Crowley family tradition. After sharing their thankfulness, the diners will pause for prayer before enjoying the feast.
