Cleary University is a Michigan based business university with two campuses; the Washtenaw Campus is located in Ann Arbor and the Livingston Campus is located near Howell. Both campus offer certificate, ABA, BBA, and MBA programs.
Founded in 1883, by Patrick Roger Cleary as the "Cleary School of Penmanship", it was incorporated in 1891 as "Cleary Business College". In 1933, the Cleary family turned the physical assets of the college over to a Board of Trustees, establishing Cleary College as an independent non-profit institution. The college moved to the 2170 Washtenaw Avenue site in 1960. A branch college was opened in Livingston County in 1979. By 1982, the combined campuses served over one thousand students. " In 2002, Cleary introduced a graduate program and changed its name to Cleary University.
The Cleary College building at 2170 Washtenaw Ave, designed by Ypsilanti architect R. S. Gerganoff was awarded a Michigan Historical Marker (site S0553) in 1983. It was torn down in 2000; today commercial buildings sit in its place, including a Walgreens pharmacy at the northeastern corner of Washtenaw Ave and Hewitt Rd.
On March 8, 2010, Cleary held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the official opening of its newest addition to the Livingston campus. Renovated in early 2010 the Cleary Welcome Center is home of the university’s admissions department, as well a few other administration offices; the focus of the new facility is the Cleary University Micro-Business Incubator (CMBI). The CMBI provides guidance and low-cost assistance to the small and start-up enterprise to foster entrepreneurship.
The LLoyd & Mabel Johnson Center for Business & Community Excellence is the focus of the Livingston Campus. The Johnson Center is home to a majority of classes on the Livingston campus. The Johnson Center is equipped to serve as the University's conference center. It is divided into 8 classrooms, an internet café, commercial kitchen, and a few offices.
The Chrysler Building was Cleary's first building on the Livingston Campus.
The current administration building is the future site of Cleary's fitness center. On campus, most everyone refers to the building as the fitness center to generate interest and excitement to promote the fundraiser efforts.
The Washtenaw Campus is home to Cleary's only current building in Ann Arbor, the Lyons' building.
