The University System of Ohio is the public university system of the state of Ohio. It is governed by the Ohio Department of Higher Education.

The system includes all of Ohio's public institutions of higher education: 14 four-year research universities, 24 branch and regional campuses, 23 two-four community colleges and technical colleges, as well as 13 graduate schools, 7 medical schools, 6 law schools, and 10 business schools within campuses. Additionally, some campuses offer Adult Workforce Education (AWE) and Adult Basic and Literacy Education (ABLE) programs. The AWE and ABLE programs were transferred from the Ohio Department of Education to the Ohio Board of Regents on January 1, 2009, to provide a flexible system of higher education that will improve services while reducing costs to students. The total annual enrollment of University System of Ohio institutions is over 526,003 as of 2020.

History

The University System of Ohio was unified under Governor Ted Strickland in 2007. In 2008, Chancellor Eric Fingerhut proposed creating common academic calendars for all of the system's universities: the goal was to simplify transfer between institutions and allow students to be recruited at the same time for jobs and internships. After spending more than $26 million starting in 2008, the transition was completed by the 2012 academic year.
