History Stillman College is a four-year, coeducational, private college affiliated with the Presbyterian Church. Stillman began in 1876 as Tuscaloosa Institute, a school for the theological training of African-American ministers. In 1898, the schoolís name changed to Stillman Institute and in 1948 it changed to Stillman College. The educational focus of Stillman grew well beyond theology as other academic programs were added. In 1899, the general assembly approved the enrollment of women. In 1948, the school became a four-year, liberal arts institution, and it awarded its first bachelorís degrees in 1951. Proud of its history and its relationship to the Presbyterian Church, Stillman aims to utilize the best of its heritage as it moves into the future by providing an environment that is both Christian and intellectual. The Collegeís enrollment is small enough to permit personalized and individualized attention to students while providing a vast educational experience. Stillman Collegeís fifteen-building campus spreads over 100 picturesque acres within the city of Tuscaloosa, Alabama. Though Italian Renaissance architecture is predominant, most building interiors are completely renovated. Stillman is committed to increasing the number of freshmen who complete their bachelorís degrees within 5 years. The school received funding for two programs: Bell South Foundation provided $70,000 to enhance the freshman experience, and the United Negro College Fund and Lilly Endowment gave money to track students from recruitment to graduation, with a focus on retention. The College became a United Negro College Fund (UNCF) member school in 1963.
