August 23, 2013

Seven Hills, Ohio, July 24, 2013 – As Chancellor University’s partnership with Alliant International University, a California-based, private, not-for-profit graduate and undergraduate institution, brings to conclusion its rich 165-year history, we are delighted to announce that the Chancellor University Alumni Association (CUAA) will take the reins in maintaining the history and legacy of the University.

Chancellor University, which traces its roots to a college of business founded in 1848 by R.S. Bacon, has been known by several names over the years, including Myers University, Dyke College, Spencerian College, Union Business School and Folsom’s Mercantile College. The school’s long list of prestigious graduates includes John D. Rockefeller, Theodore Ernst and Harvey Firestone.   

“We’re extremely honored to take part in preserving Chancellor’s memory,” said Alumni Association President Michael Tyler. “CUAA feels a great sense of pride to be a part of Chancellor’s history and understands the deep significance of the stewardship of its legacy.”

Professor Darius Navran added, “We’re all very sorry that Chancellor University is closing, but are proud to have taken part in its rich history. The alumni association is the best place to keep this long tradition and memory alive.”

Alumni of Chancellor University, as well those graduates from Dyke College, Myers University and Spencerian College, will have a continued place to share memories and network at the monthly CUAA meetings, currently held on campus.
