ANNUAL REPORT 2014
PRESIDENT ’S MESSAGE
The 2014 year was especially positive for Tiffin University. Some of the highlights are described below.
ACADEMIC PROGRAMS New academic programs were implemented, including the Bachelor of Science in Forensic Science and in Healthcare Administration, the Master of Science in Psychology, the Bachelor of Criminal Justice in Digital Forensics, the Bachelor of Arts in Cyber Defense and Information Assurance, and academic minors and certificate programs in Arabic Studies and in Latin American Studies. Also, several of TU’s online degree programs were ranked among the best in the country.
FINANCES The financial strength of the University continued to improve, including a decrease in the debt-toequity ratio and increases in the value of net assets and the financial composite score calculated each year by the U.S. Department of Education. At the end of the 2013-14 fiscal year, the value of TU’s net assets was 413% higher than at the end of the 2004-05 fiscal year.
CAMPUS IMPROVEMENTS The Murphy Academic Support Center was constructed and put into use, the two-story building on the former Pettibone property was renovated and occupied for staff and faculty offices, and plans were developed to expand and enhance the science laboratory facility, renovate one of the buildings on the former Pettibone property to create a large multi-purpose room and a café, develop a landscaped courtyard behind the Main Classroom Building, and partner with the City of Tiffin to extend the Miami Street beautification project.
ENROLLMENT The number of freshmen and the total number of undergraduates on the Tiffin campus in the 2014 fall were the largest in the University’s history, and total enrollment surpassed 4,200.
ATHLETICS TU’s athletic program finished in the top tier within the GLIAC for the conference all-sports trophy for the 2013-14 academic year and in the top 20% of NCAA Division II for post-season competition.
FUNDRAISING A campaign was initiated to raise approximately $3 million to create the Music Center by renovating two of the buildings on the former Pettibone property.
THANK YOU Tiffin University is fortunate to have an outstanding Board of Trustees, a dedicated staff and faculty, wonderful students, loyal alumni, and generous donors and supporters. The donors listed in this Annual Report are very important contributors to the success of the University and to the excellent education that is provided to our students. My wife, Susan, and I have had the privilege of serving TU for the past 13 years, and we appreciate the support and friendship that we have received from those who are directly associated with the University, as well as many people in the Tiffin community. After we retire in the summer of 2015, we will continue our interest in and support for TU, and we are confident that this great institution of higher education has a very bright future.

THE DRAGON P.R.I.D.E. PROGRAM
PHILANTHROPY, RELATIONSHIPS, INVOLVEMENT, DEVELOPMENT AND EXCELLENCE The Tiffin University Dragon P.R.I.D.E. program connects current students with alumni, bridging the gap between the two and building relationships that will last. Not only is this a program that is beneficial for alumni to maintain their knowledge of the University, but also for the current students as they learn and grow in their roles as Dragon P.R.I.D.E. officers. They obtain a wealth of knowledge through soliciting, event calling, and the actual events themselves. The goal is to connect the dots between faculty, students, and alumni, which will build positive relationships moving forward in years to come. The officers of Dragon P.R.I.D.E. are invaluable to the Office of Alumni and Development and are a point of campus pride when talking with alumni and donors.
DRAGON P.R.I.D.E. CALLERS Meet SAMANTHA SMITH TU Senior & Manager of the Dragon P.R.I.D.E. Call Center Samantha is from Nashport, Ohio, and her major is Business Management with a concentration in Managerial Studies and a minor in Human Resource Management. “I heard about Tiffin University through one of my closest high school friends, who also happened to run cross country and track with me. She was telling me what an amazing school Tiffin is and she encouraged me to apply. After I applied, TU’s cross country coach contacted me and here I am four years later!” Samantha’s goal after graduation is to land a job in the human resource field. “After graduation, my plan is to get my foot in the door at any company and work my way up, or, if possible, I can start where I would like to be. I want to run at least one marathon and I would also like to become fluent in French and Spanish. Lastly, I am a family-oriented individual and I am very eager to start a family of my own.” Samantha has worked for the Dragon Pride Call Center for about 1 ½ years. This is her fourth semester, but second semester as manager. As manager, she: n Organizes and motivates Dragon P.R.I.D.E. Officers through the calling process, creates the calling schedule and divides the calls among the callers. n Handles all credit card donations over the phone. “When alumni or friends donate via credit card, the callers direct the call to me so I can get all the required information safely and securely.” n Assists the callers whenever they have difficulty with a call. “I provide them with feedback on things they could say if the issue were to come up again.”
Reports any positive or negative issues and creates a nightly report on how the evening went. n
Do you have a “best call” memory? “One of my best calls was to a gentleman who worked for Marathon,” said Samantha. “He was very friendly and willing to talk; he was my longest call that night, about 20 minutes. I was calling him to give him the latest projects Tiffin had started and to see if he had any questions about anything. He had a couple questions, but we later ended up on the subject of internships and jobs. At the end of the call, he encouraged me to look into internship opportunities at Marathon.” As manager, how do you help other Dragon Pride members through the call process? To help the callers, Samantha believes that games are great tools. “I created a game for the callers to become competitive while they are on the phone. The game was, whoever received 5 donations was able to draw a prize from my bag. They held onto that prize and if another caller received 5 donations, they were able to draw a prize or steal a prize.” In addition to games and words of encouragement, Samantha allows for small breaks that help callers recuperate, especially if they are experiencing a slow night or negative calls. Samantha believes her job is critical to the success of Tiffin University. “My job is important because I am in charge of the Dragon P.R.I.D.E. Officers, whose responsibilities include reconnecting alumni with TU, and soliciting them for donations,” she said. “It is important for me to keep them organized, focused, and motivated to ensure that they are doing their job effectively. By keeping track of the Dragon P.R.I.D.E Officers throughout each campaign, they are able to perform their jobs better, and they are able to make better calls. I believe my future will benefit as a Dragon P.R.I.D.E. Officer. Samantha admits she is introverted, so having a job of cold calling people was very intimidating at first. “As a student caller, I was able to get out of my comfort zone to help reconnect the alumni with Tiffin. Also, I have a better understanding of what other callers are going through when they call me, so it has encouraged me to be respectful when I receive a call of this nature.” “Being the call center manager,” she continued, “will help benefit my future because it will show that I have leadership qualities that could be appealing to future employers. This position has allowed me to develop my communication and organizational skills including self-confidence.” What would you like to say to alumni and friends about Tiffin’s Annual Fund? Why is their donation important to Tiffin University? “The annual fund is extremely important,” Samantha said, “because it helps to cover costs that tuition does not cover. For example, the Annual Fund supports scholarships that help students fund their college education. By donating to Tiffin University, (Continued) 11
alumni and friends are giving students the opportunity to grow and develop professional skills that may not otherwise be possible without the Annual Fund. Any donation, small or large, will help to make a difference in the success of Tiffin University’s students.
Meet JARED COTRILL TU Junior and Dragon P.R.I.D.E Caller Jared is from Cuyahoga Falls, Ohio. His major is Cyber Defense. Jared learned about Tiffin University as a freshman in high school through cross country camp. “TU’s cross country coach was very passionate about the sport and TU. He showed me the value of TU and explained how great the education is. I instantly wanted to enroll. It was exactly what I was looking for--small class size, small school, and a great education.” Jared is very pleased he chose TU because there are very few universities in the country that offer Cyber Defense as a major and Tiffin will provide him with an internship opportunity to gain more experience in the field. His goal after graduation is to work for a government agency (FBI or CIA), or a private contractor. This is Jared’s third year as a Dragon P.R.I.D.E. caller. According to Jared, his best call memory was “making a connection with an older man who could no longer get out of the house,” he said. “He donated just a small amount, but he said that the call from us made his day because we cared enough to talk to him and devoted time getting to know him.” “Most calls are never too difficult,” said Jared, “but when you just start out in the P.R.I.D.E. Call Center, it is very intimidating. Jared believes his job as a P.R.I.D.E. caller is critical to the success of Tiffin University. “I believe all of us as P.R.I.D.E. callers make a big difference in raising money for Tiffin,” he said. “It helps our students with scholarship opportunities and opens avenues to study abroad. The annual fund is for the students. Any amount can help students with their education. Without these donations, some students would not be able to experience Tiffin University. The students are the future of our society and it is up to students, parents, and alumni to help our students succeed.” I believe my future will benefit from this experience. “The call center has made me much more outgoing and willing to speak with people that I have never met before. It has allowed me the experience of accepting rejection, but also reward when I hear yes to a donation. This opportunity is great for gaining wellrounded communication skills.
Meet SHAVONNE PRICE TU Senior & Dragon P.R.I.D.E. Caller Shavonne is from Euclid, Ohio, and her major is Addictions Counseling with a minor in Human Services. The throws coach of the track and field team of TU recruited Shavonne. She is happy with her choice because, “I have learned so much from the professors and my peers. I have truly had the college experience and have made friendships that will last a lifetime,” she said. Shavonne plans to continue her education and earn a master’s degree in counseling. This is Shavonne’s third year as a Dragon P.R.I.D.E. caller and her best memories are simple: “I really enjoy speaking with alumni who take time out of their day to reconnect with TU. Many of them take it upon themselves to give me words of wisdom like, go to school while you are young because it is a lot harder to complete grad school with a family,” she said. Difficult calls for Shavonne are when she finds that someone has passed away. “I express my condolences, but words alone cannot fill the void one may feel as a result of the death of a loved one.” Shavonne believes her job as a P.R.I.D.E. caller is critical to the success of Tiffin University. “I believe my job definitely contributes to the success of Tiffin University,” she said. “The expansion of the campus is proof of that.” I believe my future will benefit from this experience. “My life has benefited from my experience in the Dragon P.R.I.D.E. call center because it has forced me to accept rejection,” she said. “Everyone is not going to agree with what you have to say, nor will they do what you want when you want it. The ability to accept no as an answer and not let it ruin your day is a skill I have developed throughout my years working for the call center.” The Annual Fund is important because ... “One thing I would like to express about the annual fund is that it does so much good for the students, faculty and employees here on campus,” Shavonne said. “Not only does the annual fund help provide scholarships for the students, it goes toward the upkeep and beautification of the campus. Everyone wants something to be proud of. Attending a private university is something to be proud of. Being a first-generation college student is something to be proud of. Simply looking out of your window and being able to admire the beauty of the campus you have called home for four years is something to be proud of. Donations are important to Tiffin University and its current and future students because these allow the donors to become part of a legacy that will forever change the lives of those who would not be afforded the opportunities that are placed before them today.”
