As of May 2019, the Office of Graduate Outreach will oversee and direct the Summer Institute (SI) offered each summer at our Ashland and Columbus campuses.  SI is designed to maximize the summer months for teachers and administrators to complete numerous classes towards different licensures, endorsements, and degree programs in our COE Graduate studies.

Dr. Jason Mossman, the Director of Graduate Outreach, oversees the Center (CGO) and the Summer Institute.  Dr. Mossman has been in Higher Education for over 14 years in various roles both in administration and as a faculty member.  He brings experience from both state and private universities from Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky.  Dr. Mossman joined Ashland University in 2017, where he also teaches undergraduate and graduate courses.
