In 1855, Stephen Morse and Almira Blanchard founded a college for women: Almira College, which shared an affiliation with the Baptist Church and educated young women, until a change in leadership, affiliation, and organization in 1892.
At that time, the Central Illinois Conference of the Free Methodist Church purchased the property of Almira College and named it Greenville College.
The institution was restructured to offer a co-educational experience for both genders. The institution was also incorporated as an independent college under the leadership of the Free Methodist Church. Greenville College was renamed to Greenville University in 2017.
Students attending Greenville University are expected to adhere to a lifestyle that is codified and asks that the student agree to certain principles that the school calls “Christ-honoring”, outlined in a document known as the Lifestyle Statement.
Violations of the lifestyle statement are handled through a grace-based system which seeks to help students recover from any negative effects (i.e. addiction, emotional distress) and rehabilitate them to live according to what they believe is Christ’s purpose for their life.
