Founding Partner Case Western Reserve University

Case Western Reserve was originally founded in 1826. What began as two separate institutions — Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve College — federated in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University, which immediately became one of the country’s leading research institutions.

Case Western Reserve supports about 100 designated academic and research centers. The eight schools and college offer close to 200 top-ranked undergraduate, graduate and professional programs that range from arts, law and humanities to engineering and medicine.

Case Western Reserve counts 15 Nobel laureates (including the first American scientist to receive the prize) among our current and former faculty and alumni.

About 10,000 students — 40 percent undergraduate — are enrolled at the university, representing all 50 states and more than 100 countries.
