Chancellor University

Chancellor University

The history of Chancellor University (formerly Myers University) dates back to 1848 when Bacon & Co.'s Mercantile College was established by R.S. Bacon. It merged with Folsom & Child's Commercial Institute in the 1850s. Over the years, a number of other mergers took place, and eventually, the institute was named Spencerian College. The name was changed to Dyke College in 1958, and again to David N. Myers College in 1995. In 2000, it became Myers University. However, since September 12, 2008, it has been known as the Chancellor University. The campus is located in Cleveland, Ohio.

Chancellor University offers a number of associate's, bachelor's, and master's degree programs. Several certification courses are also available. The university is organized into the following 4 divisions:

  • College of Business
  • College of Liberal Arts & Sciences
  • College of Professional Studies
  • The Jack Welch Management Institute

Chancellor University provides academic and career counseling, internships, and job placement assistance to its students. It also hosts career fairs, workshops, and presentations for the benefit of the students. In addition, extensive financial aid is offered to eligible candidates through Federal grants, work study programs, student loans, and Northeastern Ohio Scholarships.
