Dean's Welcome

Thank you for visiting the website of the Columbiana County campuses of Kent State University.

With over 3,000 students between both campuses, we offer 12 bachelor’s and 14 associate degree programs that are designed to improve the educational opportunities of our communities. The campuses, located in Salem and East Liverpool, allow students to obtain a high quality university education in a small, more student- centered environment. At Kent State Columbiana Campuses, students have access to internationally-known scholars, dedicated and talented teachers, as well as an entire staff that is committed to student success.

Without question, these campuses change the lives and families of our students. 

Thanks again for visiting our website.  We hope that you will consider visiting our campuses and getting to know the great educational experience that is located right here in Columbiana County.
