Welcome to Urbana

Greetings from Urbana University, a branch campus of Franklin University!

It is not difficult to fall in love with Urbana’s picturesque, residential campus nestled in rural Ohio. For nearly 170 years, Urbana has welcomed thousands of students who seek small classes with personal attention from professors within a close-knit learning community. As the executive vice president and provost leading our branch campus, I can assure you that providing a high-quality educational experience for students is still our top priority. 

We invest in student success at Urbana University. From improvements to our physical spaces and services, to assessing our academic programs, adding new sports teams and building new relationships with the community, our ultimate goal is to provide students with the tools they need to become successful in their careers and well-rounded members of society.

Critical to student support, our faculty and staff bring not only their professional expertise, but also a strong commitment to mentoring students both inside and outside of the classroom. I urge you to take the opportunity to visit Urbana University, explore our campus and meet the people who make Urbana University a great place to live and learn.


Dr. Christopher Washington
Executive Vice President & Provost
Franklin University
