President of Cedarville University William E. Brown, Ph.D., was recently appointed to the Ohio Tuition Trust Authority’s board of directors by Gov. John Kasich.

The Ohio Tuition Trust Authority was founded in 1989 and exists as a state agency within the office of the chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents. Its goal is to help Ohio families save for a college education through offering and administering Ohio’s CollegeAdvantage 529 Savings Plan. The organization offers multiple investment options in order to meet the diverse needs of families saving for college.

Brown now serves on the 11-member board of directors after his appointment by Gov. Kasich. The governor appoints six members including a representative of a state college or university in Ohio, a representative of a private college or university in Ohio, a representative having experience in marketing or public relations, and two having experience in either banking, investment, marketing, insurance or law.

The other members are appointed by Ohio’s speaker of the House of Representatives and the president of the Senate who appoint one member from each political party in the respective legislative bodies.

Brown has served as president of Cedarville University since 2003. Prior to his current position he served as president of Bryan College for 10 years. A graduate of the University of South Florida, Brown holds a Master of Theology degree and Ph.D. from Dallas Theological Seminary.
