When the Methodist Episcopal Church began to explore the possibilities of developing a central university in the South, Chattanoogans came forward to work with the church in this effort. Founded as Chattanooga University in 1886, the University was a private school for 83 years. Three years after its founding, the University was consolidated with another church-related school, East Tennessee Wesleyan University at Athens, under the name of Grant University. In 1907 the name University of Chattanooga was adopted. In 1969 the University of Chattanooga and a junior college, Chattanooga City College, merged with the University of Tennessee, one of the oldest land-grant universities in the nation, to form the UTC campus.
