Florida Memorial UniversityFlorida Memorial University is the product of the merger of two universities, Florida Baptist Institute and Florida Baptist Academy. Both institutions promoted industrial education, domestic arts, teacher education as well as agricultural, mechanical and religious training. The Florida Baptist Institute, founded in 1879 in Live Oak, was established by the Black Baptists of Florida while Florida Baptist Academy, founded in 1892 in Jacksonville, was established by Reverend Mathew Gilbert, Reverend J.T. Brown and Sarah Ann Blocker. Both institutions received support from the Rockefeller General Education Board, Bethany Association, American Home Mission Society and several Baptist organizations.

The school moved to St. Augustine in 1918 where several new buildings were constructed from 1924 to 1940. In 1941, the school became known as the Florida Normal and Industrial Institute and, in 1963, moved to Miami. It became Florida Memorial College in 1968, gaining university status in 2006.
