Quincy University, located in Quincy, Illinois, was founded in 1860 by Franciscan monks from Germany, calling the school St. Francis Solanus College. The school received its official charter in 1973. The school, having proved effective in the training of priests, changed its name again in 1917 to Quincy College and Seminary, reflecting its religious and academic commitments. The school admitted women for the first time in 1932, and by 1970's the school closed the seminary portion of the school in favor of a liberal arts academic curriculum, resulting in a name change to Quincy College. By the 1980 serious consideration was given to graduate study programs being introduced, and by 1993 the school had implemented such programs resulting in a final name change to Quincy university.
