New Academic Building

It is an exciting time at The Ohio State University at Newark and Central Ohio Technical College!  In March, plans for the construction of the John and Mary Alford Center for Science and Technology building were announced at a press conference on campus.  A public capital campaign, Building for our Future Campaign, was announced and will raise the final $4.9 million for the STEM building.  Ohio State Newark and COTC have committed $17.6 million toward the project and have already secured an additional $9.5 million in private funds.  The Newark Campus Development Fund is proud to join other local philanthropists and foundations in making a $1 million donation for this extremely worthwhile campaign that will benefit so many.  The addition of this building to campus will enable both schools to expand their course offerings, increase enrollment, and better meet the needs of the local workforce.  The building's estimated completion date is spring 2021.  For more information about the Building for our Future Campaign or how to make a gift, contact Jennifer Roberts at 740-349-8276 or
