History of Kent State University Salem Campus: Kent State University Salem Campus (also known as Kent State University at Salem or Kent State University at Columbiana) was started as an outreach program in 1962. First located in the old Salem High School, the Salem Campus moved to its current location in 1971. In 2009, Salem Campus and Kent State's East Liverpool 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 Salem and East Liverpool created Columbiana Campus in 2009. It also includes materials created after 2009 that specifically center on Salem, 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.


Statement of Arrangement: These records are divided into the following series:

  • Series 1: Subject Files
  • Series 2: Schedule of Classes

Preferred Citation: Kent State University Salem Campus records. Department of Special Collections and Archives. Kent State University Libraries.

Related Material: After merging with East Liverpool Campus in 2009, Salem Campus is now part of Kent State University Columbiana Campus. Please view the Kent State University Columbiana Campus records finding aid for relevent materials collected since 2009.

The Kent State University Regional Campuses Office records contain materials created by the Regional Campuses office, a central office connecting Kent State's seven regional campuses. The collection includes administrative files, reports, and subject files pertaining to the Salem campus, but also encompasses all of Kent State University's regional campuses.
