President’s Welcome

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Chatfield College. If you are a first-time visitor please know that we are delighted to see you.

Founded by the Ursuline Sisters of Brown County, Chatfield College welcomes students of all ages, religions, and backgrounds.  Our classes are small and extra help and encouragement are plentiful.  You will receive a level of attention and support unavailable at most larger schools.  Many of our students work full or part-time jobs, so we are accustomed to designing schedules that are flexible and meet the needs of our students.

Chatfield awards the Associate Degree in Liberal Arts, with concentrations available in business, early childhood education, and human services, as well as other pathways and certificate programs to help you prepare for a career in health care, information technology, or literally dozens of other fields of interest.  Many of our students transfer to four-year universities and colleges and earn a bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, or other professional degree or certification.

If you are a current student, alumna or alumnus, faculty, staff, supporter, or frequent visitor – welcome back!  You already know that Chatfield is a wonderful place where faculty, students, and staff interact in a cordial and friendly manner within a professional, academic atmosphere.

I hope you take some time to explore our website. It will provide you with a lot of interesting information about Chatfield, our academic offerings, campuses, scholarships, online classes, upcoming events, recent happenings, and the people who make up our close-knit community. We have also built a transactional website to support Chatfield by making a donation, contact a staff member, and links to resources to help you on your educational journey.

Please call and set up a visit.  If you have always believed college was beyond your reach, or if you have been sidetracked by one of life’s unplanned circumstances, you owe it to yourself and your family to reconsider.  A college degree IS within reach at Chatfield.  Our admissions and financial aid counselors will show you how.

I look forward to meeting you in person at one of our campuses – in Brown County on State Route 251 just outside Fayetteville, or in Cincinnati’s historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood near downtown on Central Parkway.   See you at Chatfield!

Sincerely yours,

Robert P. Elmore
President
