History

The idea for a university was first floated during the 1952 General Synod of the HKBP. After two years of preparation, the university was inaugurated in the premises of the former Pantoan Hospital in the highland town of Pematangsiantar on 7 October 1954 with three faculties; Law, Economics, and Theology; and an enrolment of 36 students.[2]

In 1955, the law faculty was closed due to the lack of teaching staff and was only re-opened in 1980 in the Medan city campus. As the university grew, new faculties were set up to cater to the needs of the students. In 1978, the theological faculty was separated from the university and re-organised as the HKBP Theological Institute (Indonesian: Sekolah Tinggi Theologia HKBP) [2]
