Queens University of Charlotte is a private, co-educational, comprehensive university located in Charlotte, North Carolina, United States.
Queens University of Charlotte is a coeducational, comprehensive university that has served Charlotte and the Southeast for more than 150 years. The university prides itself on a strong foundation including a Presbyterian heritage, outstanding faculty, innovative curricula and creative programs. Our Name Founded in 1857 as the Charlotte Female Institute, the college was originally located at the intersection of College Street and 9th Street near the center of the city. From 1891-1896, it was called the Seminary for Girls. In 1896, chartered by Concord and Mecklenburg Presbyteries, the seminary merged with the Presbyterian Female College. In 1912, it became Queens College, and in 1914 the college relocated to its present campus in Myers Park. The name Queens College was adopted for three reasons: at the request of the Alumnae Association to disarm prejudice in deference to other Presbyterian colleges which claimed an equal right to the denominational name; to commemorate Queen's Museum, a classical school established in Charlotte in 1771; and to honor Queen Charlotte of Mecklenburg. In 1930, Queens College became related to the Presbyterian Synod of South Carolina through a merger with Chicora College in Columbia, S.C. The motto from Chicora College, Non ministrari sed ministrare - Not to be served, but to serve - was adopted as the motto of Queens College. Over the years, Queens' growing graduate programs led to its reclassification by the Carnegie Foundation as a master's level university and in 2002, Queens College became Queens University of Charlotte.
