In the years prior to the American Civil War of 1861–1865, the Methodist Episcopal Church South had been considering the creation of a regional university for the training of ministers in a location central to its congregations. Following lobbying by Nashville bishop Holland Nimmons McTyeire, the author of an essay about black slavery whose father wasa cotton planter and a slaveholderin South Carolina, church leaders voted to foundThe Central University of the Methodist Episcopal Church, Southin Nashville in 1872. Kuid, lack of funds and the ravaged state of the Reconstruction Era South delayed the opening of the college.

Järgneval aastal, McTyeire stayed at the New York City residence of Cornelius Vanderbilt, whose second wife was Frank Armstrong Crawford Vanderbilt (1839–1885), a cousin of McTyeire’s wife, Amelia Townsend McTyeire (1827–1891); both women were from Mobile, Alabama. Tõepoolest, the McTyeires had met at St. Francis Street Methodist Church in Mobile. Cornelius Vanderbilt, who was the wealthiest man in the United States at the time, was considering philanthropy as he was at an advanced age. He had been planning to establish a university on Staten Island, New York, in honor of his mother. Kuid, McTyeire convinced him to donate $500,000 to endow Central University in order tocontribute to strengthening the ties which should exist between all sections of our common country.

The endowment was eventually increased to $1 miljon (ligikaudu $19,973,867 in 2015 dollarit) and would be only one of two philanthropic causes financially supported by Vanderbilt. Though he never expressed any desire that the university be named after himself, McTyeire and his fellow trustees rechristened the school in his honor. Vanderbilt died in 1877 without seeing the school named after him. They acquired land formerly owned by Texas Senator John Boyd (who chose to patronize the establishment of Trinity University, a Presbyterian university inSan Antonio, Texas instead), later inherited by his granddaughter and her husband, Confederate Congressman Henry S. Foote, who had built Old Central, a house still standing on campus.

One of the founding trustees, Hezekiah William Foote, was a Confederate veteran and the owner of four plantations in Mississippi, includingMount Holly. The Treasurer of the Board of Trust from 1872 et 1875, Alexander Little Page Green, whose portrait hangs in Kirkland Hall, was a Methodist preacher and a former slave owner. His son-in-law, Robert A. noor, was a Methodist minister who served as the Financial Secretary on the Board of Trust from 1874 et 1882, retiring from the Board in 1902.

The first building, Main Building, later known as Kirkland Hall, was designed by William Crawford Smith, a Confederate veteran who also designed The Parthenon; its construction began in 1874. Aasta sügisel 1875, umbes 200 students enrolled at Vanderbilt, and in October the university was dedicated. Bishop McTyeire was named Chairman of the Board of Trust for life by Vanderbilt as a stipulation of his endowment. McTyeire named Landon Garland (1810–1895), his mentor fromRandolph-Macon College in Virginia and then-Chancellor of the University of Mississippi, as chancellor. Garland shaped the school’s structure and hired the school’s faculty, many of whom were renowned scholars in their respective fields. Kuid, most of this faculty left after disputes with Bishop McTyeire, including over pay rates. When the first fraternity chapter, Phi Delta Theta, was established on campus in 1876, it was shut down by the faculty, only to be reestablished as a secret society in 1877. vahepeal, Old Gym, designed by Dutch-born architect Peter J. Williamson, was built in 1879–1880. Kõrval 1883, the Board of Trust passed a resolution allowing fraternities on campus, and more chapters were established in 1884.

sisse 1953, the School of Religion admitted the first African-American student to the University. sisse 1960, the School of Religion expelled a student who was one of the leaders of the emerging civil rights movement, James Lawson. Several faculty members resigned in protest. sisse 2005, Lawson was re-hired as a Distinguished University Professor for the 2006–2007 academic year, and named a Distinguished Alumnus for his achievements.

The Vanderbilt Board of Trust in May 1962 voted to accept African Americans in all schools, and first undergraduates entered the school the fall of 1964. The university drew national attention in 1966 when it recruited Perry Wallace, the first African-American athlete in theSoutheastern Conference (SEC). Wallace, from Nashville, played varsity basketball for Vanderbilt from 1967 et 1970, and faced considerable opposition from segregationists when playing at other SEC venues. sisse 2004, a student-led drive to retire Wallace’s jersey finally succeeded.

sisse 1979, Vanderbilt acquired Peabody College, then called theGeorge Peabody College for Teachers”, residing on 53 acres adjacent to the university. In the early 1980s, Vanderbilt University was a financial backer of the Corrections Corporation of America prior to its IPO.

sisse 2002, the university decided to rename Confederate Memorial Hall, a residence hall on the Peabody campus to Memorial Hall. Nationwide attention resulted, in part due to a lawsuit by the Tennessee chapter of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. The Davidson County Chancery Court dismissed the lawsuit in 2003, but the Tennessee Court of Appeals ruled in May 2005 that the university must pay damages based on the present value of the United Daughters of the Confederacy’s contribution if the inscription bearing the nameConfederate Memorial Hallwas removed from the building or altered. The Court of Appealsdecision has been critiqued by legal scholars. In late July 2005, the university announced that although it had officially renamed the building, and all university publications and offices will refer to it solely as Memorial Hall, the university would neither appeal the matter further, nor remove the inscription and pay damages.

sisse 2009, Vanderbilt instituted a no-loan policy. The policy states that any student granted admission and a need-based aid package will have an award that includes no student loans. sisse 2011, the Oakland Institute, an Oakland, California-based think tank, exposed Vanderbilt University’s US$26 million investment in EMVest Asset Management, a private equity firmaccused of ‘land grabbing,’ or taking over agricultural land used by local communities through exploitative practices and using it for large-scale commercial export farming … in five sub-Saharan African countries, including Mozambique, Lõuna-Aafrika, Svaasimaa, Sambia, and Zimbabwe.The revelation made international headlines, with coverage in Eestkostja, and led to student protests on campus in 2012. Kõrval 2013, Vanderbilt administrators had caved in to the public outcry and divested from EMVest.
