About AME UniversityIt is evident that the history of the African Methodist Episcopal University (AMEU) is still being written. The university was founded by Bishop C. Garnett Henning, Sr., the 112th Elected and Consecrated Bishop of the African Methodist Episcopal Church (AMEC) and the 26th Bishop of the 14th Episcopal District.This vision was an actualization of the dream of the 8th Bishop of the 14th Episcopal District, the Rt. Rev. William Sampson Brooks. Rev. Brooks’ plan to transform Monrovia College and Industrial Training School into a four year degree-granting institution did not materialize during his tenure; however, it did come to fruition when Bishop C. Garnett Henning, Sr. opened the doors of the African Methodist Episcopal University in 1995.Dr. Louise C. York was President of Monrovia College when, in early 1993, with the expressed desire of Bishop Garnett Henning, the Monrovia College Board of Trustees approved a recommendation from the Monrovia College administration to develop a four year degree college in keeping with the college’s original charter of 1928. The recommendation was later endorsed by the Board of Directors of the Liberia Annual Conference.
