Frederick Schlimm, a former president of what is today Cincinnati State Technical and Community College, died Tuesday, Feb. 12.
Schlimm began his career at Cincinnati State (then known as the Cincinnati Cooperative School of Technology) on Jan. 29, 1968 as Director of Admissions and Records. At the time, he once wrote, the institution was housed in a small corner of Courter Technical High School, and was a post-secondary arm of Cincinnati Public Schools with just four academic programs and about 120 students.
Schlimm was promoted to a variety of positions, including Vice President of Academic Affairs and Vice President of Administrative Operations, before he was appointed president of what by then had become Cincinnati Technical College, succeeding its first president, Clifford House.
Under Schlimm's leadership the college doubled in size, from about 2,000 students to more than 4,000, and the number of academic program offerings increased to 45.
"Fred was one of the people who laid the foundation for the Cincinnati State we know today," said Cincinnati State's current president, Dr. O'dell M. Owens. "In many respects, he was a visionary educator."
Among the notable developments during Schlimm's tenure:
The auditorium in what was then the former Courter Technical High School building was renovated to house what is now the Johnnie Mae Berry Library.
In 1981 the college launched a "$1 Million Select Campaign" to sustain excellence in technical education, and exceeded that goal two years later.
Long a proponent of cooperative education, Schlimm declared 1983-84 "The Year of the Co-Op," launching an expansion effort that laid the foundation for what is today one of the largest co-op programs in the United States.
He was instrumental in launching an early childhood education center in the early 1980s, providing not only day care for students and employees but also an academic program in the field. "Fred wanted to make sure it was more than a baby-sitting service," Imhoff said. "He made it educational."
A Memorial Mass will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, Feb. 16 at St. Aloysius Gonzaga Church, 4366 Bridgetown Road, preceded by visitation starting at 8:30 a.m. at the church.
