历史可以追溯到1857年

Long before we were Queens University of 夏洛特, we were the 夏洛特 Female Institute. The year was 1857, the year of our founding in downtown 夏洛特. Since then, much has changed. 我们学校现在是男女同校. 我们提供硕士学位. We’re located in Myers Park, just three short miles from our original location. And 夏洛特 has changed around us – it’s become one of the country’s fastest-growing cities.

尽管我们已经长大, we still offer an intimate campus where high-caliber 教师 can have mentoring relationships with 学生. In addition to expanding academic offerings, we continue to offer an ever-evolving curriculum that empowers every student to succeed. We embrace our increasingly diverse student body, maintaining a close-knit community that unites us as Royals.

名称的演变,使命 & 学生的身体

Queens started as the 夏洛特 Female Institute (1857-1891). Then we became the Seminary for Girls (1891-1896), then the Presbyterian Female College (1896-1912). In 1912, we became Queens College and moved to our beautiful Myers Park campus.

In 1930, Queens linked to the Presbyterian Synod of South Carolina through a merger with Chicora College. 有了这种伙伴关系, we adopted Chicora’s motto: “Non ministrari sed ministrare” (“Not to be served, 而是为了服务。”). Though the schools are no longer joined, the motto continues at Queens. The spirit of service continues in the actions of 学生, 教师, 工作人员 and alumni who live this motto and make it our institutional mission.

In the 1940s, we began our journey to become co-ed. Shortly after World War II men could attend Queens College, but not live on campus. In 1948, Queens opened a co-ed evening college. Then, in 1987, we became fully co-ed college. In 2002, after nearly a century and a half of growth and change, we became who we are today: Queens University of 夏洛特.

大学 & 学校

While our curriculum evolves continually, ensuring that our 学生 have the latest skills, it’s rooted in a strong liberal arts approach. The result is an education that’s innovative, yet timeless.

During the past twenty-five years, we have expanded our expertise and offerings to educate the next generation of leaders. In 1993, we established the 麦科尔商学院 to join the original undergrad program, known as the College of Arts and Sciences. In 2004, we merged the nursing program with Presbyterian Hospital’s program to create the Presbyterian School of Nursing. In 2007, the 校董会 approved the creation of the 韦兰H. 卡托,小. 教育学院. In 2008, we opened the School of Communication, later named the 詹姆斯L. Knight School of Communication. In 2010, we met a growing demand for options in the field of healthcare by creating the Andrew Blair College of Health.

From Brick and Ivy to Online

Queens launched its first online degree in 2008, the Bachelor of Science in Nursing for existing RNs, 称为RN到BSN. 五年后, we introduced several online master’s degrees, including the Master of Arts in Communication, the Master of Science in Nursing, the Master of Arts in Educational 领导, and the Master of Business Administration.

A Tradition of Looking Forward

Over the past century and a half, we’ve carefully created a sense of intentional balance. Queens is where big city meets small school. Where self-discovery occurs amid selfless service. Where our curricula evolve to teach the latest skills while respecting our timeless liberal arts core. We’ve created a unique learning environment that doesn’t ask 学生 to choose between these ideals and interests. We invite them to be both, be more – and in so doing, to leave their own mark on our history.

Taskforce on the 历史 of Slavery and Its Legacies

The Queens institutional values cannot be embodied without understanding, 分享, and representing its history. 2020年3月初, Queens University of 夏洛特 President Daniel Lugo commissioned a task force consisting of 教师, 工作人员, 学生, and alumni to examine and report on the university’s historical relationship to slavery and its legacies. This course of action was prompted when library 工作人员 members shared concerns about a documented history of slavery connections to the 夏洛特 Female Institute. The task force’s recommendations were to join the Universities Studying Slavery Consortium and for Queens to make an ongoing commitment to the work of understanding, 分享, and growing from the knowledge of the institution’s past to inform and shape the university’s present and future. 欲知详情,请浏览 Queens Taskforce on the 历史 of Slavery and Its Legacies webpage.
