PROFILE OF THE COLLEGE

 

ABOUT THE COLLEGE

Prior to its charter as North Central Technical College, the institution was known as the Mansfield School of Technology. It was initiated by the Mansfield Board of Education in September 1961 and approved by the State Department of Education. The rationale of the Mansfield Board of Education was to establish a two-year, post-high school diploma granting school that would prepare men and women for various careers. The graduates were satisfying the rapidly-growing employment needs in the industrial and business society of the area.

The original location of the Mansfield School of Technology was 218 Marion Avenue, Mansfield, Ohio. The limited physical facilities, projected enrollment growth, and need for additional student services led the school’s administration, advisory committees, and the Mansfield Board of Education to seek the creation of a Technical College District in compliance with the Ohio Revised Code. North Central Technical College was approved by the Ohio Board of Regents and certified by the Secretary of State on September 26, 1968. This action of the Ohio Board of Regents and the Secretary of State created the Technical College District in the contiguous counties of Ashland, Crawford, and Richland. In August of 1999, the Board of Trustees changed the name of the college to North Central State College.

Currently, the NC State-OSU campus houses North Central State College and a regional campus of The Ohio State University. Certain physical facilities and services are shared by each institution. The campus represents a model in sharing resources by two separate institutions. Each institution has its own faculty, curricula, policies, and operating procedures. NC State also maintains the Advanced Technology Learning Center in Shelby and the Urban Center in downtown Mansfield.

North Central State College is directed by a Board of Trustees, the members of which are public representatives of Ashland, Crawford, and Richland counties. Copies of North Central State College's most recent financial statement are available upon request. If interested, please contact the Business Office at 419-755-4816.
