School Notes

  • 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. 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, curriculum, policies, and operating procedures. NC State also maintains a Learning Center in Shelby. Located on a 600-acre tract of land, the campus offers a variety of physical facilities to support many academic and extracurricular activities. The campus consists of ten buildings, encompassing an area of approximately 250,000 square feet. The Henry R. Fallerius Technical Education Center contains classrooms, lecture halls, technical laboratories, data center, faculty offices, and the administrative offices for North Central State College. The Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial Center serves as a comprehensive, student center which includes the student union, quiet and active game areas, music-listening rooms, cafeteria, and a student coffee house. Bromfield Hall includes a library, classrooms, laboratories, and faculty offices. North Central State College is chartered by the Ohio Board of Regents as a state-assisted institution of higher education and is approved by the State Department of Education, U.S. Department of Education; State Department of Education for Veterans; Bureau of Vocational Rehabilitation; and the Department of Justice, Immigration, and Naturalization Service. The College is accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
