Brief History

Western Reserve University

Western Reserve College was founded in 1826 in Hudson, Ohio. By 1875, a number of other schools had been established nearby, and Cleveland had emerged as the dominant population and business center of the region. In 1882, with funding from Amasa Stone, Western Reserve College moved to Cleveland and changed its name to Western Reserve University. 

Case Institute of Technology

Founded in 1882, Case Institute of Technology was located in the Case family home on Rockwell Street in downtown Cleveland. Classes were held in the family house, while the chemistry and physics laboratories were on the second floor of the barn. The school moved to University Circle in 1885. 

Case Western Reserve University

Case Institute of Technology, a school of science and engineering, and Western Reserve University, known for its strong liberal arts and professional programs, came together in 1967 to form Case Western Reserve University. The federation was intended to create a complete university, one better able to attain national distinction, a plan that has succeeded as CWRU continues to climb in the national rankings.  In addition to improved academics, the merge improved athletics as well. The CIT Rough Riders and the WRU Red Cats are now the Spartans of Case Western Reserve University.
