"Clark State serves Logan, Champaign, Greene, and Clark Counties in Ohio by focusing on student success and regional, statewide, and national workforce needs. Clark State takes very seriously its role as the gateway to the middle class for our students, and measures its performance by credential attainment, number of transfer students, good salaries and careers for its graduates, and the strength of its community and cultural programming."
Clark State developed the first Precision Agriculture program in the state of Ohio. Clark State has a rich history in agriculture studies, and the precision agriculture program focuses on the application of technology and data analysis to improve crop yields, resulting in an in-demand job in the largest industry in Ohio.
