Our History ETSU was founded in 1911 as East Tennessee State Normal School to educate teachers. East Tennessee State officially became a college in 1925 when it changed its name to East Tennessee State Teachers College, subsequently gaining accreditation from the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools in 1927. In 1943, East Tennessee State Teachers College was expanded into a college with a range of liberal arts offerings, becoming East Tennessee State College. The college became a University in 1963, adopting the name it holds today. ETSU has gone through many changes since its inception. Over the tenure of 9 presidents, ETSU has grown to encompass 11 colleges utilizing 4 campuses and several satellite facilities. Among its colleges is the Tennessee Board of Regents only College of Medicine, founded in 1974, and a privately funded College of Pharmacy which admitted its first class in January 2007. Through the years ETSU has grown not just physically but also virtually via its online presence. ETSU opened its first distance education course in 1990. ETSU offered its first online course in 1995 and its first fully online program in 2001, the first of each in the State of Tennessee. ETSU Online has since grown to include nearly 500 courses and 45 fully online degree program concentrations and certificates as of Fall 2013.
