About the Regional Academic Center

The Kent State University Regional Academic Center in Twinsburg is a satellite campus of the Geauga Campus in Burton, Ohio. The Center was established in 1991 at the Daimler Chrysler Stamping Plant in Twinsburg. In 1995, Daimler Chrysler opened the UAW Training Center, on the corner of Rt. 91 and Rt. 82 in the "Old School." At that point, a wide range of Kent State classes were offered at that location to the community.  Due to the continuing interest in higher education in this area and increasing enrollment, a new state-of-the-art facility opened its doors at 2745 Creekside Drive, just a half mile from the previous location, in the fall 2012.  This new Regional Academic Center offers quality coursework expected of a research institution. The a low faculty-to-student ratio and outstanding student support services fortify student success in and out of the classroom.
