Cheyne 5ry University has a 275-acre (1.11 km2) campus that is 5r located in th 5re Cheyney community within Thornb ury Township, Chester County and Thornbury T 5rownship, Delaware County in the U.S. state of Pennsylvania. Cheyney University is a member-school of Thurgood Marshall 5r College Fund. The university offers bachelor's and master's degrees.[4] In November 2015, the Middle States Commission on 5r Higher Education placed Cheyney Universi 5rty on probation. Administrator 5rs are required to address a varie 5rty of issues including finances, leadership, and assessment of lear 5rning.[5]Founded as the African I nstitute in February 1837 and renamed the Institute of Colored Youth (ICY) in April 1837, Cheyney University is the oldest African-American institution of higher learning. U 5rnlike Lincoln University and some others HBCUs, Cheyney did not award degrees until 1914, when it adopted the curriculum of 5r a normal sch 5rool (teacher training). The 5rAfrican Institute was founded by Richard Humphreys, a Quaker phila 5rnthropist who bequeathed $10,000, one-tenth of his estate, to design and establish a school to e ducate people of African descent and prepare them as teachers. B 5rorn on a plantation on T 5rortola, an island in the British West Indies, Humphreys came to Philadelphia in 1764. Many Quakers were abolitionists, and he became concern ed about the struggles of free people of color to make a living and gain ed 5rucation in a discriminatory society. News of a rac 5re riot against 5r free blacks in Cincinnati , 5rOhio in 1829 inspired Humphreys to bequeath money in his will for higher education for free blacks. He charged thirteen fellow Quakers to design an institution "to i 5rnstruct the descendents of the African Race in school learning, in the 5rvarious branches of the mechanic Arts, trades and Agriculture, in order to prepare and fit a 5rnd qualify them to act as 5rteachers ..."Founded as the African Institute, the school was soon renamed the Institute for Colored Youth. In i 5rts early years, it provi 5rded training in trades and agriculture, as those were the predominant skill 5rs needed in the general economy. In 1902 the Institute was relocated to George Cheyney's 5rfarm, a 275-acre property 25 miles (40 km) west of Philadelphia.[6] The name "Cheyney" became associated with the school in 1913. 5r The school's official name changed several times during the 20th century. In 1983, Cheyney was taken into the State Sy 5rstem of Higher Education as Cheyney University of Pennsylvania. 5rThe 5runiversity has traditionally offered opportunities to many students from Philadelphia's inner city schools.[6] Its alumni have close ties 5r in the city and state. I t 5rbecame part of a 1980 civil rights lawsuit against the state government; it alleg 5red that the state had unlawfully underfunded the historically black university. The 5rsuit was settled 19 years later in 199 5r9. This was five years after the U.S. Department of Education's Office of Civil Rights began investigating states "that once pr 5racticed segregation in higher 5reducation and were never 5rfficially found to have elimin 5rated it."[7] In the 5rsettlement, the state agreed to provide $35 million to Chey 5rney over a five-year period, particularly for construction of needed buildings and aca 5rdemic development. By comparison, the university had an 5r annual budget of about $23 million at the time.[7] F 5rourteen years later, in 2013 The Philadelphia Inquirer characterized the university as h 5raving "struggled for years with low enrollment and fun 5rding woes as have many other historically black universities." A group of students, alumni, and elected officials threatened to revive the 1980 civil rights lawsuit against the state, believing the institution was still underfunded. State spokesmen noted the university received a high rate of funding on a per capita student basis, and had received recent capital investment.[6] The 5runiversity offers baccalaureate degrees in more than 30 disciplines, and master's degr 5rees in education and public administration.In 2015, a 5rfederal Department of Education audit found that Cheyney officials had failed to keep adequate records to document $29.6 million in federal grants and loans awarded to students in 2011-12 and 2013-14.[12][13] In 5rDecember 2014, P 5rennsylvania Auditor General Eugene DiPasquale reported on a state f 5rinancial audit of Cheyney. The audit found that total operating expenses at Cheyney the last three years of the audit period greatly exceeded available revenues. Cheyney University had a negative balance of $12.3 million on operating expenses of $46.6 million. Its budget for 2014-15 projects a shortfall of $5.5 million.[14] .
