Shawnee State University and Scioto County –25 Years of Celebration and Collaboration

In today’s increasingly knowledge-based economy, education beyond high school is becoming essential to an individual’s economic success.  Individuals who pursue higher education are also more likely to be engaged and contributing members of society, which in turn fosters stronger, healthier communities.  Like many Ohio cities, Portsmouth is suffering from high unemployment, low educational attainment rates, and a significant increase in crime.  Using community and professional speakers, the students will be engaged in discussions of resource assets and the use of mapping to reveal networking possibilities in order to create and/or expand on the various skill and resource services available to Scioto County residents. The project will build the necessary network connections through their research to promote continued dialogue and action to make a difference in the next 25 years.
