The University of La Verne is a private not-for-profit university located in La Verne, California, United States, about 35 miles (56 km) east of Los Angeles. Founded in 1891, the university is composed of the College of Arts & Sciences, College of Business & Public Management, College of Education and Organizational Leadership, College of Law, and a Regional Campus Administration that oversees seven regional campuses. It awards both undergraduate and graduate degrees. Many of their classes are taught at smaller campuses throughout the greater Los Angeles area.

History[edit]

Lordsburg College c.1910

The University of La Verne was founded in 1891 as Lordsburg College by members of the Church of the Brethren, a German Christian sect originating from the Schwarzenau Brethren. Historically, the Brethren are considered one of the "peace churches", like the Quakers and the Mennonites.[3]

Both the surrounding agricultural community and the College were renamed La Verne in 1917. The College reorganized in 1977 as the University of La Verne. At present, the structure of the University consists of the College of Arts and Sciences, the College of Business and Public Management, the College of Education, the College of Law, and Regional Campuses.

The school conferred its first master's degree in 1965 and began an adult education program in 1969. ULV awarded its first doctorate in 1979. In 1981, the University founded a campus in Orange County and has since opened campuses throughout southern California, including on some military bases. Despite its Church of the Brethren heritage the university describes itself as non-sectarian.[4]

Campus heritage[edit]

Founders Hall on the main campus contains reminders of the university's Christian heritage.[5] The founding plaque, placed in 1927, states that the university is "dedicated...to the cause of Christian education." In the top level of stacks at Wilson Library, the LaVerne founding fathers are shown in the costume of the Brethren. The cornerstone of the main building reads: "Christ Jesus Himself is the chief corner stone." Slots on the Board of Trustees are still held for members of the Brethren.[5] The baccalaureate ceremony is held at the local Church of the Brethren, and the holder of the post of campus minister must be a member of the Church of the Brethren.[6]
