School Description

Slippery Rock University, founded in 1889, is a member of Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education. The school was originally called Slippery Rock State Normal School and its purpose was to train teachers. In 1926, the School was purchased by the Commonwealth and expanded as a four year teachers college; it was also renamed the Rock State Teachers College.
