Office of the President

Dr. Mark A. Smith, Ohio Christian University PresidentWelcome to Ohio Christian University! There are thousands of colleges and universities that offer a quality education, but on many campuses students are just a number. Ohio Christian University is different.

As a regionally accredited university, OCU is committed to academic excellence, but our commitment doesn’t end there. Solid academic programs are complemented by unique opportunities for mentorship, spiritual growth, and personal development. Our outstanding faculty and administration are committed to the success of every student. We will spend time getting to know you and investing in your life.

As President, I enjoy traveling with student groups and spending time with the leaders of tomorrow. My wife and I even invite students into our home throughout the year. Whether it’s sharing a home-cooked meal or opening our doors for an informal gathering, we look for ways to invest in the life of every student.

Don’t be a number. Come to Ohio Christian University. Let us help you reach your life dreams and educational goals. We train leaders to change the world!

See you soon,
Dr. Mark A. Smith, President
