Midland University History

Founded in 1883, Midland University is the product of college and church mergers. Midland College was established at Atchison, Kansas, by the General Synod of the Evangelical Lutheran Church on September 15, 1887. The name Midland College was selected because of its central location in the United States. In 1919, the college moved to Fremont, Nebraska. The Fremont property had previously been called Fremont Normal School and Business College. In 1962, Midland merged with Luther Junior College (founded in Wahoo, Nebraska, in 1883). Midland College then became Midland Lutheran College, and finally, in 2010, Midland Lutheran College was re-founded as Midland University to facilitate consolidation around areas of strength and greater expansion into graduate-level education.
