Wilberforce University is a private, coed, liberal arts historically African-American university located in Wilberforce, Ohio, that is affiliated with the African Methodist Episcopal (AME) Church and participates in the United Negro College Fund. Planned by the Cincinnati, Ohio Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church to provide a "literary institution" (classical education) and teacher training for black youth, founders worked in partnership with founders from the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AME) to develop Wilberforce University. It was named for the 18th century English statesman and abolitionist William Wilberforce. The college also played a role in the Underground Railroad. The campus is located three miles from the county seat of Xenia, Ohio, and 21 miles from Dayton, Ohio and about the same distance to Cincinnati. When the U.S. Civil War threatened the university's future, in 1863 the AME Church purchased the college, making it the first to be owned and operated by African Americans.
