Goshen College was founded in 1894 as the Elkhart Institute of Science, Industry and the Arts, a private preparatory school to provide the opportunity for Mennonite and other young people to further their education. Soon afterwards, the Mennonite Church took over its operation, and by 1903 the school so flourished that new facilities were needed.
