A global research university,
powered by experience
Experience is at the heart of everything we do
Founded in 1898, we’re renowned for our experiential learning model, high-impact research, deep partnerships, and worldwide reach. From day one we’ve pursued innovative ways of teaching and research that place a premium on experience and engagement with the world. Today, our signature approach erases traditional boundaries, empowering not only students, but faculty, alumni, partners, and innovators to solve problems and pursue impact.
Opportunity is always in motion
We’ve created a one-of-a-kind global university system of campuses, alumni, and partners that forms a dynamic, diverse, and inclusive community. We create new opportunities for richer educational experiences, and deeper collaborations across industries and disciplines to bring the right expertise together to go from promise to reality.
