Case Western Reserve University is a premier research institution in an urban center.

There are four schools and colleges: Case School of Engineering, College of Arts and Sciences, Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing and Weatherhead School of Management. Students are admitted to the university and not to a specific college; students choose courses, majors and minors that connect their interests. While we tackle projects and problems—and solve them—in a way that makes us seem like a much larger university, you will find our community of 5,400 undergraduates to be incredibly friendly, kind and encouraging.
