President's Welcome

Greetings from Urbana University!

Nestled in picturesque Urbana, Ohio, you’ll find the atmosphere of our 128-acre campus warm and friendly and alive with the vitality of our student body.  

There are a wealth of academic opportunities available to Urbana students. From agribusiness and nursing to criminal justice and education, the common thread woven through the academic experience is the personal attention students can expect from their professors, who are dedicated to their success.

We are proud of the achievements of our alumni and their success provides inspiration to our students who have entrusted in us their hopes and aspirations after graduation. We are committed to building on the University’s 160-year history to continuously improve every aspect of their college experience – from technology to enhance their learning to the physical spaces in which they live and learn.

I would like to personally invite you to visit us and feel the energy that exists on our campus for yourself. Attend an athletic event; sit in on a class and talk with current students. Most importantly take the time to meet Urbana’s faculty and staff members. From admissions counselors, to professors and coaches, they make the Urbana experience a transformational one.


Dr. David R. Decker
