Dr. Carol P. Ramsay came to Lake Erie College in 1991 to serve as the Associate Dean for Teacher Preparation and Graduate Programs in Education. Previous to that she was the Director of Secondary Education at Grove City College in Pennsylvania and the first principal of Youngstown Christian Schools.

Dr. Ramsay taught in the public elementary schools in Youngstown before accepting an appointment to work with her church to establish a Christian School. During her tenure at Youngstown Christian School, the school was founded and accredited by the Ohio Department of Education and the Association for Christian Schools International (ACSI) for Preschool through Grade 12. She not only developed curriculum for all grades, hired teachers and staff, and administered the schools, but worked with 132 diverse churches garnering support and students. The school began in 1975 with less than 100 students and was serving about 400 students when she resigned to begin her doctorate.

Dr. Ramsay received her Bachelor’s Degree from Youngstown State University, her M.Ed. from Westminster College, and doctorate from the University of Akron. She did post doctoral work at Grace Theological Seminary in Christian Education.

At Lake Erie College, Dr. Ramsay has served in many capacities as Professor, Associate Dean of undergraduate and graduate programs, Associate Dean of Professional Development, Field Director, Coordinator of Assessment and Accreditation and Assistant Dean.

Dr. Ramsay has served on the Board of the NE Ohio Regional Professional Development Center and the Board of the Ohio Association of Private Colleges of Teacher Education, Planning Committee for OCTEO (Ohio Confederation of Teacher Education Organizations) Conferences, Advisory Board for Hospice of the Western Reserve and the Senior Panel for Distribution of Funds for United Way.

Dr. Ramsay has served on Lake Erie College Committees including: Educational Planning Committee, Academic Standards Committee, Faculty Evaluation Committee, Institutional Review Board, General Education Committee, and Chair of the Assessment Committee and a plethora of search committees.

Dr. Ramsay brings 50+ years of experience in education to her position and to the students she teachers.

She is married to Keith M. Ramsay (47 years), has two sons and three exceptional grandchildren who hopefully will one day be Lake Erie College Graduates because as Michael Oher says in Blind Sided, "This is where our family goes to school.” She enjoys Bible Study, Reading, her piano, and spending time with her immediate and large extended Italian family.
