The John M. Ashbrook Center for Public Affairs hosts its own web site and is governed by a Board of Trustees composed of many prominent citizens and former legislators. The Center offers a curriculum of political studies under the umbrella of Ashland University, Ashland, Ohio.  Dedicated on May 9, 1983, by former President Ronald W. Reagan (1911-2004) the Center maintains the Ashbrook Scholar Program which to date has assisted those students pursuing undergraduate degrees with an emphasis on political affairs.
