The Finest In Educational Excellence.

Case Western Reserve University is one of the nation's leading independent research universities, with programs that encompass the arts and sciences, engineering, the health sciences, law, management, and social work.

Although its origins date to 1826, the University in its present form is the result of a federation of Case Institute of Technology and Western Reserve University. The two institutions shared adjacent campuses during the nineteenth century, and were involved in cooperative efforts for many years. Today, Case Western Reserve's enrollment and resources, distributed among undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs, achieve a balance that is distinctive among American universities.

Case Western Reserve University is located in University Circle, a 550-acre, park-like concentration of approximately 50 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions located at the eastern edge of the city center. University Circle attracts visitors from throughout the region to its concerts, theater performances, athletic events, art shows, public lectures, exhibits, and restaurants. Housing, shopping, and recreational facilities are all located in the area.
