Davis University has a rich history of serving its community through the educational opportunities it provides. In 1881, young Matthew H. Davis left his chairmanship in the mathematics department and his position as director of the business department at Albert College, Belleville, Ontario, to accept the management of Toledo Business College. The small school of 35 students, which had been established in 1858, rapidly grew to 350 students.
In January 1993, Ms. Diane Brunner became the fifth President of Davis University. Ms. Brunner joined Davis University in 1984 and enthusiastically believes in the University's mission. In 2008, the University was honored as one of Ohio’s best employers by the Ohio Chamber of Commerce. Davis University also earned the Better Business Bureau® Torch Award for marketplace ethics. As true of all past Davis leadership, President Brunner is dedicated to the promotion of higher educational standards and continuing the University's role in building community.
