OCHER

The Ohio Council of Higher Education Retirees (OCHER) is a nonprofit organization of retiree representatives from public higher education institutions in Ohio. Member institutions include University of Akron, Bowling Green State University, Cleveland State University, University of Cincinnati, Kent State University, Miami University, NE Ohio Medical, The Ohio State University, Ohio University, Shawnee State University, University of Toledo, Wright State University, and Youngstown State University.

The purpose of OCHER is to promote the welfare of retirees of Ohio public institutions of higher education by:

  • providing advocacy, leadership and representation for retirees in Ohio public retirement systems, to the Ohio Legislature, and to other appropriate groups at the local, state and national levels that deal with issues concerning the welfare of retirees of public institutions of higher education;
  • sharing information among member institutions of general interest as well as that specific to a particular campus;
  • supporting retiree organizations at each of the member institutions; and
  • encouraging the formation of retiree associations at institutions not represented at OCHER.

YSURA’s OCHER representatives, George Beelen and Marianne Anderson, attend quarterly meetings in Columbus, Ohio. Below is a summary of each meeting:
