Shawnee State University (SSU) is a public university located in Southern Ohio. It is Ohio's newest state-supported university and is located on the north bank of the Ohio River in the city of Portsmouth in Scioto County. Ted Strickland, Ph.D., the current governor of Ohio, is a former SSU assistant professor of psychology. Shawnee State University was established in 1986. The late Vernal Riffe Jr., the former Speaker of the Ohio House of Representatives, sponsored House Bill 739 authorizing the university, which became law on July 2, 1986. Vernal G. Riffe also endowed funding for a state of the art "Center for the Arts," which was named The Vern Riffe Center for the Arts in his honor.[citation needed] SSU has a low student/faculty ratio, and provides more than $1.5 million in scholarships. In the 2006-2007 academic year, enrollment reached 3,800 students.
