Coppin State University is a historically black college located in Baltimore, Maryland, United States. It is part of the University System of Maryland. Coordinates: 39.31028°N 76.65861°W. The University is a member-school of the Thurgood Marshall College Fund. Coppin State University was founded in 1900 at what was then called Colored High School (later named Douglass High School) on Pennsylvania Avenue by the Baltimore City School Board who initiated a one-year training course for the preparation of African-American elementary school teachers. By 1902, the training program was expanded to a two-year Normal Department within the high school, and seven years later it was separated from the high school and given its own principal.
