Tiffin University is to host the Legislative Breakfast on Wednesday, November 2 at 8 a.m. at the Osceola Theater in Gillmor Student Center.
The event’s goal is to engage with locally elected officials. University representatives will discuss new programs and recent successes, including new facilities, strategic innovation accomplishments and fruitful grants. There will also be two panels featured: one of students who will discuss issues most important to them, as well as personal stories about the value of their education, and one of employers who will discuss how they partner with the University and their experience with graduates and workforce trainings. The event will close with Tiffin University’s President Dr. Lillian Schumacher discussing challenges and the vision for the upcoming year and comments from participating legislators.
Legislators slated to attend are: Tiffin Mayor Dawn Iannantuono, Tiffin City Council members, Seneca County Commissioner Anthony Paradiso, Ohio State Senator Bill Reineke, State Representative Gary Click and more.
TU’s Vice President for Institutional Advancement and Public Affairs Mitch Blonde stated, “The Legislative Breakfast gives TU a valuable opportunity to spark the conversation with local legislators so that we can provide the best educational experience for our students, which leads to an educated and trained workforce for the Seneca County community.” He went on to say, “This type of collaboration creates a strong community. When opportunities arise, the University and our partners will feel comfortable contacting each other – asking for help or with their help.”
