Westerville, OH—The Graduate School at Otterbein University will presents its fall symposium, The Changing Faces of Central Ohio, with a reception at 6 p.m. and presentation at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Oct. 22, in Roush Hall, 27 S. Grove St. The event is free and open to the public; no registration is required.
According to the Mid-Ohio Regional Planning Commission, Delaware and Franklin counties are the fastest-growing counties in the state, and the seven-county central Ohio region added 17,850 people from July 2010 to July 2011. Of all the people who moved to Ohio from other countries, one third of them came to Franklin County. A panel including Angela Plummer, Columbus Refugee and Immigration Services, and Abdinur Mohamud, Ohio Department of Education and former minister of education in Somalia, will share their experiences of how population changes in central Ohio are impacting our relationships, our schools and our communities.
The Graduate School Symposium Series is offered twice each year, during spring and fall semester. Topics provoke new thought, stimulate engaging conversations and promote collaborations through talks on varied topics of interest. Topics range from education, health care, change management, technology innovations, commerce, creative arts and social justice.
