Manchester University


Manchester University traces its origin to the Roanoke Classical Seminary founded by the United Brethren Church in Roanoke, Indiana in 1860. The seminary became North Manchester College when it was moved to North Manchester, Indiana in 1889. Representatives of the Church of the Brethren purchased the campus in 1895 and deeded it to four State Districts of the Church in 1902. 


Manchester University respects the infinite worth of every individual and graduates persons of ability and conviction who draw upon their education and faith to lead principled, productive, and compassionate lives that improve the human condition. 


Year after year – within six months of their commencement – 96 percent of Manchester graduates enter the work force, continue their education full-time or join full-time voluntary service. MU offers its undergraduate students an “employment guarantee” – if they have taken advantage of Manchester's services and opportunities and still don’t have a job within six months of graduation, they may return for a year, tuition-free.
