Ashland University receives Award of Excellence

At the 2014 the Ohio District 5 Area Agency on Aging’s Annual Meeting, Ashland University, along with Ohio State Mansfield, was recognized with an Award of Excellence.  Nominees for the Award are considered based on outstanding community service and/or providing solutions to a difficult problem in the northern Ohio area. 

Noted were the University’s Social Work Program and its College of Nursing, both of which partner with the Area Agency on Aging to provide students with field experiences.  This partnership equips students with the experience and skills needed to meet the challenges of working with an aging population.   Ashland University Social Work Program places value on offering internship experiences to students in agencies that provide and coordinate services to older adults and that promote independence and well-being for those adults.
