case western reserve was orignally foundedin 1826, and our history is as long and storied as our name. 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. With an endowment of more than $1.4 billion, Case Western Reserve supports about 100 designated academic and research centers, and receives nearly $400 million in external research awards each year. Our 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. Virtually all 2,600+ faculty members hold doctorate or appropriate terminal degrees. They are researchers. They are teachers. They are leaders in their fields. In fact, Case Western Reserve counts 15 Nobel laureates (including the first American scientist to receive the prize) among our current and former faculty and alumni.
