Ohio higher education chief looks to ease state mandates

By admin Published: July 11, 2011

COLUMBUS: Ohio's higher education chief is working on a program for easing regulations on public universities if they agree to give up some state money.

The Columbus Dispatch reports Chancellor Jim Petro will release a specific proposal next month to create semi-private enterprise or charter universities.

Petro told the newspaper he's not ready to say which state mandates would be loosened on enterprise schools or what the price in state aid might be. He said he's keenly interested in easing regulations that result in oversight he considers excessive.

University officials say Petro is on the right track. Ohio University President Roderick McDavis said in a statement that a steady decline in state support for public universities must be accompanied by increased flexibility.
