About Wichita State University

History

Wichita State University was founded in 1886 by Rev. Joseph Homer Parker as a private Congregational preparatory school. It was referred to as Young Ladies College, Wichita Ladies College, and Congregational Female College. In 1887, after a land parcel from the developers of the adjacent Fairmount neighborhood, the school was renamed Fairmount College in their honor. Although being built with support from the Plymouth Congregational Church, the school never opened. In 1892, the property was bought by a company who renamed it to Fairmount Institute. It opened for both men and women but soon closed due to financial problems. In 1895, Fairmount College was opened on the same site. In 1926, the institute became the Municipal University of Wichita. On July 1, 1964, the school officially entered the state higher education system as Wichita State University.
