Biographical or historical data
Founded in 1902, Indiana Central University opened in 1905 in the University Heights neighborhood in Indianapolis, Indianapolis as a private college of the Church of the United Brethren in Christ. Unusual in its day, the college was coeducational and accepted students of all races. Initially, the institution offered bachelor of arts and master of arts degrees, as well as high school diplomas, and had eight educational departments: the College of Liberal Arts, Teachers' College, Conservatory of Music, School of Oratory, School of Commerce, Bible Institute, School of Arts, and the Academy, in which students completed their preparatory work and earned high school diplomas. By 1927, the academy was discontinued and most of the other departments were absorbed into the College of Liberal Arts. The North Central Association of Schools and Colleges accredited the university in March of 1947. In 1986, the college was renamed the University of Indianapolis. The University of Indianapolis has had nine presidents to date: J. T. Roberts (1905-1908), L. D. Bonebrake (1909-1915), I. J. Good (1915-1944), I. Lynd Esch (1945-1970), Gene E. Sease (1970-1988), G. Benjamin Lantz, Jr. (1988-1998), Jerry M. Israel (1998-2005), Beverley J. Pitts (2005-2012) and Robert L. Manuel (2012-present).H. H. Fout was the bishop of the Northwest District in 1914.
