The Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg

The Twinsburg Connection

In the early 1990's, Geauga Campus administration initiated the reach of education into Twinsburg which resulted in the construction of a new state of the art facility that opened for fall semester in 2012. The Geauga Campus and the Regional Academic Center share staff, faculty and this website.

The Kent State University Regional Campuses advance Northeast Ohio by providing open access to a major University education.  The campuses are key intellectual resources for social diversity, cultural enrichment, and economic development.
