Case Western Reserve University

History

  • Case Western Reserve University was founded in 1826 in Hudson, Ohio.
  • The college, which was the first in northern Ohio, took its name from the surrounding region (known at that time as the Western Reserve of Connecticut).
  • As a result of the prosperity of the late 19th century, the city of Cleveland, Ohio, was on the rise and it needed a university.
  • With funding from American industrialist Amasa Stone, the college moved in 1882 to "uptown" Cleveland.
  • Case Institute of Technology, a school of science and engineering, and Western Reserve University, known for its strong liberal arts and professional programmes, came together in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University.
  • In U.S. News & World Report's 2013 rankings, Case Western Reserve's undergraduate programme ranked 37th among national universities.
