(AdoptedNovember 8, 2018)Vision StatementMidway University is a vibrant and diverse institution committed to academic excellence andindividual growth.ValuesMidway University fosters core values shared by the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) andreflects the beliefs of our founder, Dr. L.L. Pinkerton. These values include: Valuing the dignity of all peopleActing with integrity and responsibilityViewing self as part of the communityLiving life within a global contextProviding service to othersPursuing life-long learningHistory & TraditionsMidway University, formerly the Kentucky Female Orphan School, was the dream of Dr. Lewis LetigPinkerton, a young physician and minister of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). Togetherwith James Ware Parrish, the Midway Christian Church elder who raised the funds necessary to2

open the school, they joined with other progressive thinkers to launch a revolutionary educationalexperiment. In antebellum Kentucky, the few girls who received formal education were taught to readonly because it was considered necessary for their role as mothers. When they reached adulthood,they would read the Bible to their children. Female orphans were rarely offered even this meageramount of schooling. Without education or parental support and concern, the most many could hopefor was a lifetime of drudgery as a maid or laborer.The liberal arts curriculum and career preparation proposed by Dr. L. L. Pinkerton was acomprehensive solution to this tragic situation, and the benefits reached far beyond the individual girlswho attended the school. Dr. L. L. Pinkerton’s dream became a reality as Midway-educated teacherswent forth to share their learning with youngsters throughout the stateand region. In the years since its inception, the institution has evolved to meet the educational needsof women, and now men, while preserving the goals and standards of its founders.Today, Midway University has achieved its goal of excellence in education, providing advancedinstruction in a broad range of subjects based upon a strong liberal arts curriculum. The campus andprograms have grown with the school’s enrollment, yet many of the traditional ideals Midway wasfounded on have remained constant. The university’s affiliation with the Christian Church (Disciplesof Christ) remains strong and many members of the student body are active members of ChristianChurch congregations.On May 12, 2016, the Midway University Board of Trustees voted to become fully coeducational inall its undergraduate programs by fall 2016. Daytime programs and the residential campus had beensolely for women since the school’s founding and operated as a Women’s College. Evening andonline undergraduate programs and graduate programs all have been co-ed since their inception.3
