Bluefield State College says

To serve the racially segregated public schools in the coal camps, progressive citizens of both races worked together to establish Bluefield Colored Institute, a ?high graded school for Negroes,? in 1895. The institution thereafter evolved into a black teacher's college, adopting formal teacher training in 1909 and was renamed ?Bluefield State Teachers College? in 1931. The name ?Bluefield State College? was adopted in 1943, reflecting a growth in the number and diversity of the institution's academic programs.

Bluefield State College was integrated after 1954. By the 1960s, the College had a comprehensive four year program of teacher education, arts and sciences, and engineering technology. Gradually, a variety of two year technical programs evolved in response to local needs.

Bluefield State College has emerged as a four year state supported college with a primary academic emphasis in professional and technical programs. The liberal arts offerings of the College are designed to enhance its unique mission.
