Five flexible start dates.

Option to attend class on ODU’s campus during the evening, online, or possibly on-site at a location in Gahanna.

“I am delighted to partner with our neighbors in the City of Gahanna to help provide its talented and diverse workforce with an opportunity to advance their education by pursuing an ODU master’s degree at a reduced cost,” ODU President Connie Gallaher said. “This partnership will allow us to further support the individual educational aspirations of those who live and work in Gahanna, while providing educational resources to help this community continue to grow and thrive in the years to come. I am grateful to Mayor Jadwin for her leadership and enthusiasm to enter into this exciting partnership with Ohio Dominican.”

“Having a strong team in place is vitally important to the work and services that we perform daily on behalf of our residents,” said Gahanna Mayor Laurie Jadwin. “This innovative collaboration with Ohio Dominican University will enable our team members to pursue vocational and professional growth opportunities that will expand their abilities to serve our community while also creating opportunities for their personal growth.
