History of Kent State University East Liverpool Campus: Kent State University East Liverpool Campus (also known as Kent State University at East Liverpool or Kent State University at Columbiana) was started as an academic center in 1965, originally located in the International Brotherhood of Pottery building. It moved to its present location in 1968, with its official establishment as a Kent State University regional branch. In 2009, East Liverpool Campus and Kent State's Salem Campus merged to become Kent State University Columbiana Campus, with both branches remaining in their respective locations.


Scope and Content: This collection focuses on materials produced before the merge of East Liverpool and Salem created Columbiana Campus in 2009. It also includes materials created after 2009 that specifically center on East Liverpool, as opposed to a focus of Columbiana Campus. The collection is made up of materials formerly housed in a vertical file in the Department of Special Collections and Archives. The records are composed mostly of subject files, publications and reports. Many of these materials were created by the Publications Office on the Kent State University main campus.

  • Series 1: Subject Files
  • Series 2: Reports
  • Series 3: Schedule of Classes
  • Series 4: Oversized Materials
