Since its founding in 1969 as the Muskingum Area Technical Institute, the college known as Zane State College has changed names and physical locations. Today, Zane State’s main campus is in Zanesville, Ohio, at a location shared with Ohio University Zanesville. In addition, Zane State has a campus in Cambridge, Ohio. With primary responsibility for serving the Muskingum, Guernsey and Noble counties in Ohio, Zane State offers 25 technology programs and is guided by the motto: “Start here. Go Anywhere!”

Zane State is led by Dr. Paul R. Brown, who became the institution’s fifth president in January 2004. Zane State seeks to build a vibrant community that empowers people, enriches lives and advances the region through education, collaboration and opportunities. This mission is achieved through the collaboration of 214 faculty members and 89 staff members, who serve more than 4,000 students. Brown suggests that “Zane State is a modern college that delivers an experienced-based education provided with a personal touch.”
