Throughout the nineteenth century, Ohio University continued to grow. By the late 1800s, Ohio University had taken a leading role in providing education and training to Ohio's future teachers. The goals of the university and the State of Ohio were to provide skilled teachers and to establish standards in public education. In 1896, the Ohio government provided Ohio University with government funding through taxation. Ohio University was one of the earliest institutions of higher education in Ohio to receive some state support through taxation. Today, Ohio University has an enrollment of more than 28,000 students and offers 276 different undergraduate degree programs.
