The following biographical note is excerpted from Rochester University’s website:
“In 1954, members of Churches of Christ formed a Board of Trustees to establish an educational institution in the North Central region of the United States. In the initial college catalog, the institution’s leaders affirmed their dedication “to the task of leading students toward higher academic achievement.” The founders also stated their belief “that the development of Christian ideals in the life of an individual is highly important.” Leaders of Rochester University remain firmly committed to those ideals.
The college opened in 1959 as North Central Christian College and became Michigan Christian Junior College in 1961. The board dropped “Junior” from the institution’s name in 1978 as the college prepared for the addition of its first bachelor’s degree program. The name was changed from Michigan Christian College to Rochester College in 1997. That change signaled a broadening of the college’s vision as a liberal arts Christian college. The institution became Rochester University in 2019.
The values-based and values-driven curriculum of the university provides a great educational experience in today’s culture. Men and women educated at Rochester University embrace challenge, apply problem-solving skills, serve their communities and provide leadership for challenges yet to come.”
