Carson-Newman, a Christian, private, liberal arts institution, is located in Jefferson City, some 25 miles east of Knoxville. Established as Mossy Creek Missionary Baptist Seminary in 1851, the school began by holding classes in a local Baptist church. In 1880, the University was named Carson College and for several years existed alongside Newman College, a separate facility for the education of women. In 1889, the two colleges united as one of the first coeducational institutions in Baptist circles. In 1919, Carson-Newman became officially affiliated with the Tennessee Baptist Convention. The University was admitted to membership in the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools in 1927 and the Association of American Colleges in 1928.
