Welcome to Spring Semester 2020

Dr. Denise Rohr is Associate Provost of Assessment and Accreditation

Provost Robbin Hoopes announced that Dr. Denise Rohr has been selected as the College’s first Associate Provost of Assessment and Accreditation.

Provost Hoopes said, "Dr. Rohr brings to this crucial role a wealth of education and experience, from multiple perspectives, related to assessment and accreditation."

Dr. Rohr has served at Cincinnati State as a Professor and Program Chair for Nursing, and as Associate Dean of the Health & Public Safety Division. She also served as Interim Dean of Health and Public Safety.

Provost Hoopes added, "Dr. Rohr was instrumental in three Higher Learning Commission (HLC) visits during the past year."

"She successfully engaged faculty and staff in the process, she helped others develop and deliver compelling evidence of compliance, and she increased college-wide understanding of learning outcomes assessment."

As Associate Provost of Assessment and Accreditation, Dr. Rohr will lead College activities to meet HLC expectations for accreditation and learning outcomes assessment.

She also will serve as the College’s designated HLC Accreditation Liaison Officer.

Dr. Rohr's work as Associate Provost is supplemental to her continuing role as Associate Dean in HPS.

Reminder: Email password process changes on Feb. 10

Cincinnati State is changing the process used to update passwords for all College email accounts.

  • All email passwords will expire on Monday, Feb. 10, 2020, and must be updated using the new 2-step verification process.
  • To be able to update your College email password, your cell phone number and personal email address must be up to date on your Cincinnati State "My Profile" page. (For instructions on how to update "My Profile," click here.)

The new process applies to all student and employee email accounts.

You'll receive "your password is expiring" notifications starting 10 days prior to Feb. 10, and can update your password any time during the 10-day period, using 2-step verification.

Two-step verification (also known as "two-factor authentication") provides extra security for email accounts, and is used by many businesses and organizations.

  • The new process for updating passwords includes entering a security code.
  • You'll receive the code either by text message to your cell phone, or by email to your personal email address.
  • If you don't enter the security code, you won't be able to update your password.

To avoid problems on Feb. 10, please remember to update your "My Profile" page as soon as possible.
