Ohio University and the National Federation of State High School Associations (NFHS) have agreed to a one-year renewal of their longstanding corporate partnership.
The nation’s ninth-oldest public university, Ohio University will be designated as an Official Corporate Partner of the NFHS and its “Exclusive Educational Academic Program Partner.”
“The NFHS is excited to have Ohio University return for another year as an official corporate partner,” said Dr. Karissa Niehoff, NFHS chief executive officer. “Much like the NFHS, Ohio University is constantly striving to improve the current landscape of education-based activities, and it is doing so through the tremendous opportunity provided in its online athletic administration program.”
Since 2004, Ohio University’s online Master of Athletic Administration (MAA) programhas specialized in developing interscholastic athletic administrators who aspire to lead education-based athletic programs that make a difference in the lives of young people. The 30-credit hour program, which can be completed in less than 21 months, offers a convenient online format for athletic professionals seeking to further their careers through practical knowledge and competencies. The MAA curriculum was designed in partnership with the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, and by completing the program, students earn credit towards certification through the NIAAA’s Leadership Training Institute.
“We are grateful to continue our partnership with the NFHS,” said Aaron Wright, director of Ohio University’s online MAA program. “Aligning with the national leader in education-based athletics and supporting its coach education program allows us to further our mission of developing the best interscholastic athletic directors and coaches around the country.”
