Why Choose Tiffin?

The reason you should choose Tiffin University is simple. We are a university that will help you develop the skills you need to be successful in your career or to help you enter a new profession.

We offer…

Innovative Programs: When students told us they wanted to study homeland security and forensic science, we built nationally recognized degree programs.

Connections: When Tiffin students said their educations were being transformed by faculty connections that led to internships and careers, we listened. Now each and every student in our criminal justice program is required to have an internship before they graduate—and they are guaranteed to be given faculty guidance to ensure it happens. These connections are evident in all areas of our academic programming. For example, faculty member Tim Schultz, a certified public accountant who serves on community boards, councils, and committees, has helped dozens of students transfer what they have learned in the classroom into the real world, and he's done that by helping them secure internships that will transform their futures.

Flexibility: When students said they wanted more convenience and new ways to learn, we added online degrees and expanded our degree completion programs. And when we saw that so many of our students were involved in the performing arts, we built The Hayes Center for the Arts, which includes an art gallery, two art studios, and music rehearsal rooms.

Creativity: When students said they wanted to create even more student clubs and organizations, we supported them. Faculty member Sherry Truffin worked with students to establish the English Enthusiasts, a student organization that sponsors poetry readings and publishes Tiffin's online literary magazine TU Review.

Access to the Real World: When students told us they were inspired by having access to experts who would come to campus as visiting professors and guest speakers, we found new ways to make that happen. In 2006, we had a number of outstanding guest speakers, including Porter Goss, former CIA director, and Willie T. Hulon, executive assistant director of the National Security Branch of the FBI.
