The Ohio Council of Higher Education Retirees, also known as OCHER, was officially founded in 1994 as a nonprofit organization that supports the formation of retiree organizations at each member institution within the Public Universities of Ohio. It is a network of retiree organizations that provides communication between groups and advocates on issues affecting retirees. Bowling Green State University joined OCHER in 1995.
