    The University of Tennessee Southern, is a liberal arts, four-year College, originally formed under the name Martin Methodist College, founded in 1870, and related to the Tennessee Conference of The United Methodist Church. In 2015, the Master of Business Administration offered its first classes.

     Martin Methodist College merged with the University of Tennessee Systems and became The University of Tennessee Southern. With a historic campus located in Pulaski, Tennessee, in the beautiful hills of southern Middle Tennessee, The University of Tennessee Southern is convenient to both Nashville (70 miles to the north) and Huntsville, Alabama (40 miles to the south). 

    The University of Tennessee Southern, formally known as Martin Methodist College, orignally named after Thomas Martin who provided for the establishment of a school for girls in Giles County by giving the original endowing gift of $30,000 through a provision in his will in 1870. His bequest was the fulfillment of a dream of his daughter Victoria who, before her death at the age of twenty, requested that her father establish such a school for young women. A new chapter began in 2021.
