History, tradition, and values
At Marshall University we’re proud of our history, which began with the founding of Marshall Academy in 1837. The academy was named in honor of John Marshall, the fourth chief justice of the US Supreme Court (1801–1835). Today the Sons and Daughters of Marshall exemplify Justice Marshall’s values: independence, initiative, achievement, ethical integrity, and commitment to community through association and service.

Growth and development
There’s never been a more exciting time to be a part of the growing community at Marshall University. New facilities include the Visual Arts Center in the heart of downtown Huntington, the Chris Cline Athletic Complex housing the MU Sports Medicine Institute, and the Arthur Weisberg Family Applied Engineering Complex, home of our programs in Engineering, Computer Science, Safety Technology, and Digital Forensics.

Marshall’s degree programs are expanding as well with the recent addition of graduate degrees in Social Work, Biomechanics, and Jazz Studies, among others. Faculty and administrators at Marshall University continually evaluate our program offerings to ensure our students have the best opportunities to pursue their educational and career goals.
