As this semester comes to a close, another responsibility comes to light – the right to vote on May 4th.
Recently, University President Dr. Proenza spoke of the importance of The Third Frontier, Issue 1, to Ohio’s economy and higher education-based research.
In the end, what does The Third Frontier mean for students? In short, it helps provide the foundation for industries across Ohio in areas such as advanced materials, alternative energy and fuel development, biomedical imaging, improved diagnostics, treatments for cancer, and many diseases.
Since 2002, The Third Frontier has resulted in nearly 55,000 direct and indirect jobs for Ohio. To date, approximately 40% of grants awarded have been to businesses and universities in the Northeast Ohio community.
The proposed renewal of The Third Frontier will authorize $700 million in bonds over four years beginning in 2012, helping continue the advancements that have been made over the past eight years with more than 500 companies.
Graduating and entering the workforce can be daunting. With initiatives like The Third Frontier, Ohioans have the ability to invent the future by developing new processes and technologies to save lives and improve the human condition.
On May 4th, make an informed decision when voting on Issue 1 – The Ohio Third Frontier.
