Sinclair Community College
Sinclair Community College is an urban community college located in downtown Dayton, Ohio and is the largest community college at a single location in the state of Ohio.
Sinclair Community College is named for David A. Sinclair, a Scottish immigrant and secretary of the Dayton YMCA (1874ï¿½1902), who founded the adult training school that eventually became Sinclair College in 1948. Under the leadership of Dr. David Ponitz, who served as president from 1975 to 1997, Sinclair became a model institution for community colleges by pioneering new approaches in technology and business curricula. The David H. Ponitz Sinclair Center (Building 12) is named after him.
