Washington University in St. Louis

Founded in 1853, Washington University is one of the nation’s premier institutions of higher education, dedicated to challenging its faculty and students alike to seek new knowledge and greater understanding of an ever-changing, multicultural world. The university is counted among the world’s leaders in teaching and research, and draws students and faculty from all 50 states and more than 100 countries. Its programs, administration, facilities, resources, and activities combine to further its mission of teaching, research, and service to society.

Washington University is tied for the 15th rank with Cornell University and Vanderbilt University in US News & World Report’s 2016 rankings of America’s “Top National Universities.” The same publication ranked the School of Medicine sixth in the nation, and the George Warren Brown School of Social Work was tied for first with the University of Michigan – Ann Arbor.

Approximately 90 percent of undergraduates come from outside Missouri. A total of 1,730 students enrolled in the Class of 2019, selected from more than 29,200 applicants. Students at Washington University have been recognized with the Rhodes, Fulbright, Marshall, Beinecke, and Truman Scholarships and the Goldwater, Mellon, Putnam, National Science Foundation, and National Graduate Fellowships, as well as the Howard Hughes Fellowship for undergraduate research.

The university offers more than 90 programs and almost 1,900 courses leading to bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral degrees in a broad spectrum of traditional and interdisciplinary fields, with additional opportunities for minor concentrations and individualized programs. More than 12,800 full-time and about 1,600 part-time students benefit from and contribute to the studies of arts and sciences, architecture, art, business, engineering, law, medicine, and social work. The following are just a few examples of the significant contributions Washington University is making to society through this work:

  • The Siteman Cancer Center at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and Washington University School of Medicine has earned the highest possible rating—“exceptional”—from the National Cancer Institute. The center serves nearly 9,000 newly diagnosed cancer patients each year.

  • As a top-two school of social work in the nation, the Brown School is an international leader in policy and procedures to address challenges from poverty to productive aging.

  • The Institute for Public Health harnesses the multidisciplinary strengths of Washington University to address complex health issues facing St. Louis and communities worldwide.

In the last 48 months, Cortex development has resulted in an additional $500 million of private investment and development in 20 surrounding neighborhood projects.

  • Washington University collaborates with 29 leading institutions worldwide to educate future leaders and address global challenges such as energy and sustainability, public health, education, and international understanding. These efforts are carried out through the McDonnell International Scholars Academy.
