In 2012, pursuant to authorization of the Chief Justice of the U.S. District Court Eastern District Michigan, a certified copy of "Great Lakes Lutheran University Charter" and significant Federal Court Order granting authority to establish a new American University including actualization of Faculties comprising a "College of Law", "College of Dentistry", "School of Medicine", "Teacher Education", "Liberal Arts", "Humanities" was conveyed to National Institute of Health College of Medicine to ensure the perpetual preservation of the "University Education Charter";  Shaw College At Detroit (AKA: MeHarry College,LLC);  "University St. Augustine's & Institutes of Medicine."


Historical Prospectus

In 1921, under the auspices of the "Great Lakes Lutheran Church", organization of an Institution of Higher Education commenced. 

In 1925, the Lutheran Church Board of Directors, commissioned the development of the Institution of Higher Education advocating establishment of its existing school as a college. 

In 1936*, the Michigan State Legislature granted the Great Lakes Lutheran Church contiguous authority of  a “University Education Charter”, which was manifested as a “Normal College”. 

As such, the Lutheran Church was granted authority to organize faculties of a "University" to be actualized in the United States of America within the state of Michigan ~AND ~ within the Provinces in the Nation of Canada.   

Thus, the Michigan State Legislature duly authorized the "University Charter" formerly known as the "Great Lakes Lutheran University Charter", which subsequently manifested as "Shaw College At Detroit".
Successively the U.S. Federal District Court sanctioned the "University Charter" as MeHarry College, LLC, and ultimately authorized designation of the "University Charter" as a new American University to be known as the “University St. Augustine's & Institutes of Medicine."  

Thus, the Successor of the "Great Lakes Lutheran Church Charter" is vested as the "University St. Augustine's & Institutes of Medicine."
