Urbana University is a private university specializing in liberal arts education. Urbana is in Urbana, Ohio, approximately one hour west of Columbus and one hour northeast of Dayton. Urbana University was founded in 1850 by followers of the 18th century Swedish philosopher and scientist, Emanuel Swedenborg.
The university was the second institution of higher learning in Ohio to admit women; the first was Oberlin College. Urbana University offers 28 undergraduate majors and Graduate programs in Nursing (MSN), Education (MEd), Business Administration (MBA), Criminal Justice Administration (MA), and a Post-Baccalaureate in Teacher Licensure. Today, Urbana is home to more than 1,800 students from around the world. Uniquely focused on student success with a tight-knit, supportive community, the University provides a world-class educational experience in a caring and supportive environment.
In June of 2014, Urbana University was acquired by Franklin University. This alliance enabled Urbana to preserve its historic mission and identity, remain separately accredited, and enjoy immediate improvements to the overall infrastructure of the campus, providing a renewed energy that our students proudly embrace today.
