College History

History

The college was founded in 1887 by the Synod of Kansas of the United Presbyterian Church of North America as Cooper Memorial College. It changed its name to Sterling in 1920. When the Presbyterian Church (USA) came into existence in 1958, the newly formed Presbyterian Synod of Kansas considered combining Sterling and the College of Emporia. Sterling almost declared bankruptcy in 1982, but was saved by a campaign that raised $3.8 Million. Sterling College is a member of the Association of Presbyterian Colleges and Universities. Sterling College launched e.Sterling, its online programs in 2007 in hopes of bringing its message to a larger audience. Students can now complete portions of their bachelor's degree online. Sterling College's online program is now called Sterling College Online and can be found at online.sterling.edu
