Edinboro University was founded in 1857 as the Edinboro Academy, a private training school for Pennsylvania teachers. The school was founded and governed by the citizens of Edinboro, Pennsylvania, who paid just $200 for one acre and $3,200 to construct its lone two-story, six-room building, which still stands on the EU's campus as the remodeled Academy Hall. Joel Merriman was the Academy's first principal.
Today, Edinboro University sits on 585 sprawling acres and has an additional 26-acre campus, Porreco College, in Erie, Pennsylvania. Interim President Michael Hannan led it to develop and evolve as northwestern Pennsylvania's largest University. The institution's name has changed, and its focus has expanded over the decades, but its core mission of challenging and supporting students in their pursuit of academic excellence remains constant.
