“My first day on the job will officially signal many of the success we’ve sought after for so long,” Bishop-Clark said. “Along with five new bachelors degrees, our first-ever master’s degree and new, regionally-based departments for all of our faculty, effective July 1 we will officially be unified into a single, strengthened institution called Miami University Regionals. We’ve situated ourselves for sustained, quality growth.”
The regional campuses “are stronger than we ever have been and can now provide even more educational and economic opportunities for our individual communities,” she said. “We’re educating a workforce that is well-rounded, experienced and committed to these communities already. We’re also providing more options for local businesses to invest both in their employees and the future of their companies.
“We are invested in the success of Hamilton and Middletown, and our growth is theirs,” Bishop-Clark said.
Last year she was a West Chester Liberty Chamber Alliance Women of Excellence award winner. She also was 2015 chairwoman of the Middletown United Way Campaign, which raised $1.6 million dollars, $300,000 above goal.
Bishop-Clark, who serves on the Middletown Community Foundation board of trustees, earned a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of Dayton, plus from the University of Cincinnati she received a master’s in Quantitative Analysis and an Ed.D. in educational foundations.
