History[edit]

The Ohio State University at Mansfield was founded in 1958 as a land-grant college and was created through a partnership between Mansfield-area citizens and the state of Ohio. Soon after the Ohio Board of Regents designated Mansfield as the site for an OSU regional campus, Mansfield-area citizens mounted a major campaign to acquire land for the campus.[1]

In the early 2000s, the Mansfield Campus Master Plan was launched to establish a framework and long-range (ten-year) vision of the future Mansfield Campus.[2] The Campus Master Plan intends to provide for conserving the University's and College's finite and irreplaceable resources, unifying and integrating campus development, creating individual institution identities, improving the quality of campus environment by a commitment to strong planning and design principles, strengthening linkages between the institutions and the community.[2]
