From the Executive Committee

"It has been especially rewarding to see a successful pilot year for the Inclusive Teaching Endorsement and the OCTC with nearly 100 endorsements awarded in 2021-22. I have yet to come across a consortium and a collaboration like this one." 

-- Tom Sudkamp, Vice Chancellor, Academic Affairs, ODHE
