Holbrooke Distinguished Achievement Award as part of the Dayton Literary Peace Prize at a ceremony last night at the Schuster Center.

Over the last year, Antioch has been in a process called Self-Study. It’s an internal review of the programs and services of the college and one of the many things needed to achieve accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission, the group that grants accreditation. This self- study gave the college a chance to identify the strong points of the institution and examine where it still needs work. Now the college is gearing up for a site visit from the Higher Learning Commission.

U.S. Rep. Mike Turner will be in Dayton today alongside Amanda Wright Lane of the Wright Family Foundation to discuss efforts to purchase the Wright Company Factory buildings and include them in Dayton's aviation history park.
The buildings are the first U.S. facilities specifically designed and built to manufacture airplanes.
