    The University

    Led by President Barbara R. Snyder since 2007, Case Western Reserve University is ranked 37th among national universities, 42nd best values, and 1st in Ohio (U.S. News & World Report, 2016). CWRU is also ranked 12th among colleges that contribute to the national good (The Washington Monthly, 2015).  An institution on the move, CWRU’s enrollment success can be measured in several notable ways: applications eclipsed 25,000 this year, up from 7,500 in 2009; there is an increasing diversity within the applicant pool; and the institution embraces a need aware admission policy with an ability to meet full need of all accepted applicants.  Applications have increased at a rate greater than any other American Association of Universities private university since 2009.  Average SATs of enrolled students have increased 80 points since 2009 and the admit rate has dropped from 70% to 35%.  We’re not done.  We seek a candidate with the ability to amplify these results in the years ahead.

    Case Western Reserve University is located in Cleveland, Ohio, in University Circle which is a 500-acre, park-like home of more than 40 cultural, medical, educational, religious, and social service institutions.  CWRU holds membership in the Association of American Universities, an international organization that includes the top American research institutions.

    The CWRU history is a rich and fascinating story of Western Reserve College, 1826, and Case School of Applied Science, 1880, collaborating, relocating, creating the beginnings of University Circle, and finally merging into a university federation in 1967, worthy of national distinction.  As a complete university in 1992, Case Western Reserve University immediately became a leading institution for academics and research, as well as one of the nation’s top-ranked universities.  Today the university thrives on collaboration across academic and administrative divisions and partnerships with dozens of other institutions, including its neighbors in University Circle.

    The university has a long history of embracing diversity.  A stop on the underground railroad, the Cozad-Bates house sits today on the edge of campus as a reminder of University Circle’s place in history.  Frederick Douglas gave the commencement address at Western Reserve College in 1854, believed to be the first university commencement address by a former slave.  Today, CWRU embraces diversity in all forms and such efforts are central to the efforts of undergraduate admissions.  The university has recently been recognized as a national leader in efforts to support a growing LGBT community. 

    Case Western Reserve University is now comprised of seven schools and one college: Case School of Engineering; College of Arts and Sciences; Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing; Jack, Joseph and Morton Mandel School of Applied Social Sciences; School of Dental Medicine; School of Law; School of Medicine; and Weatherhead School of Management.

    Renowned for research, Case Western Reserve students conduct groundbreaking work, starting in their first year on campus. From medicine to management, music to mathematics, faculty, staff and students inquire, explore, study and discover.  They are driven to expand knowledge, deepen understanding and, when possible, contribute to the well-being of individuals, organizations and society at large. 

    Students can participate in a number of traditional programs and have over two hundred recognized student clubs and organizations in which to engage.  As Spartans, student athletes participate in 17 NCAA Division III sports.


    Located in the vibrant neighborhood of University Circle, just minutes from downtown Cleveland, CWRU is surrounded by more than 50 arts, cultural, educational, health and human service institutions.  Case Western Reserve University is the only independent, research-oriented university in a region bounded by Pittsburgh and Rochester on the east, Nashville on the south, and Chicago on the west.  From its first-rate museums and outstanding destinations - Cleveland Orchestra at Severance Hall, Cleveland Museum of Art, Cleveland Botanical Garden, Museum of Contemporary Art Cleveland or Cleveland Museum of Natural History, to name a few - to its professional sports teams, to its nearby neighborhoods for shopping and dining (Little Italy, Cleveland Heights and Shaker Heights), Cleveland is an exciting place to live, work and play.  Dozens of the country’s best medical centers are located in Cleveland, including Cleveland Clinic, MetroHealth and University Hospitals of Cleveland.  Find out what Case Western Reserve University considers as the top ten things to do in Cleveland.
