Founded in 1920, in downtown Lima, UNOH, formerly known as the Northwestern School of Commerce, focused solely on Business Administration and secretarial degrees. In the 1970s, the school began to offer technical training in the Automotive and Diesel fields. In 1992, the school made history by launching the first High Performance Motorsports Degree Program in the world. From there, the growth and expansion took off. Collegiate athletics was brought back to campus, the number of students educated in any given year tops 4,000, and UNOH has taught students from all 50 states and 61 countries in its history.
