Program Manager, Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education

Patrick Britton

As an avid love of Northeast Ohio, I am personally and professionally committed to seeing our region thrive beyond all imagining.

In work, I serve as the Program Manager for the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education (NOCHE). NOCHE leads the Northeast Ohio Talent Dividend, an effort to increase college degree completion in our region, and NEOintern, an internship program connecting students to employers in our region.
