The new leader of Ohio’s state agency that coordinates higher education will visit Wright State University and Clark State Community College on Monday as part of a statewide tour.

The public is invited to meet Ohio Board of Regents Chancellor John Carey during his first visits to the schools. He will discuss the impact of the state budget and learn about workforce development efforts, the new agriscience STEMM school at Clark State and services for veterans at Wright State.
