He serves on the Finance and Appropriations Subcommittee on Higher Education and the Education and Career Readiness Committee, among other committees. Prior to elected office, he was a senior policy and budget analyst, legislative aide and caseworker at the Lorain County Job & Family Services.
The Faculty Forum will include brief opening remarks by Ramos followed by a question-and-answer session. The event is open to faculty, staff and students.
