History

University Building

Eastern was founded in 1874 as Central University. In 1906, the Kentucky General Assembly established the Eastern Kentucky State Normal School as a teacher's college. In 1922 it became a four-year institution and changed its name to the Eastern Kentucky State Normal School and Teachers College, awarding its first degrees under that name in 1925. Today the undergraduate division remains the largest unit within the university. The school received accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in 1928; then, two years later, in 1930, it changed its name again to the Eastern Kentucky State Teachers College. Eastern added graduate studies in 1935, and thirteen years later, in 1948, the General Assembly removed the word Teachers from the school's name, and granted it the right to grant nonprofessional degrees. It was not until 1966 that the school was officially renamed Eastern Kentucky University. Image File history File links EKUunivbuilding. ... Image File history File links EKUunivbuilding. ...
