History Harris-Stowe State College is a four-year, state-supported, coed, teachersí college. Established by the public school system of St. Louis in 1857, Harris Teacherís College was for white students only. In 1890, the public school system established the Sumner Normal School, an extension of Sumner High School, for the education of black teachers of elementary schools. In 1924, Sumner became a four-year degree-granting college and five years later changed the institutionís name to Stowe Teacherís College, in honor of abolitionist and novelist Harriet Beecher Stowe. The current Harris-Stowe State College was created by the St. Louis Board of Education when it merged Harris Teacherís College and Stowe Teacherís College in 1954. The merger of the two teaching colleges was one of the first steps taken by the board of education to integrate the St. Louis public school system. In 1979, Harris-Stowe became a part of the Missouri state system of public higher education. Harris-Stowe State College is an urban college exclusively dedicated to educating students to become teachers and education specialists. The College was approved for its unique Bachelor of Science degree in urban education in 1981. All programs at Harris-Stowe are devoted to professional education development.
