The University of Pennsylvania (commonly referred to as Penn or UPenn) is a private, Ivy League, research university located in Philadelphia. Incorporated as The Trustees of the University of Pennsylvania, Penn is one of 14 founding members of the Association of American Universities and one of the nine original Colonial Colleges. Penn claims to be the oldest university in the United States of America.

Benjamin Franklin, Penn's founder, advocated an educational program that focused as much on practical education for commerce and public service as on the classics and theology although Franklin's curriculum was never adopted. The university coat of arms features a dolphin on the red chief, adopted directly from the Franklin family's own coat of arms. Penn was one of the first academic institutions to follow a multidisciplinary model pioneered by several European universities, concentrating multiple "faculties" (e.g., theology, classics, medicine) into one institution. It was also home to many other educational innovations. The first school of medicine in North America (Perelman School of Medicine, 1765), the first collegiate business school (Wharton School of Business, 1881) and the first "student union" building and organization, (Houston Hall, 1896) were all born at Penn.

Penn offers a broad range of academic departments, an extensive research enterprise and a number of community outreach and public service programs. It is particularly well known for its medical school, dental school, design school, business school, law school, engineering school, communications school, nursing school, veterinary school, its social sciences and humanities programs, as well as its biomedical teaching and research capabilities. Its undergraduate program is also among the most selective in the country, with an acceptance rate of 10 percent. One of Penn's most well known academic qualities is its emphasis on interdisciplinary education, which it promotes through numerous joint degree programs, research centers and professorships, a unified campus, and the ability for students to take classes from any of Penn's schools (the "One University Policy").

All of Penn's schools exhibit very high research activity. Penn is consistently ranked among the top research universities in the world, for both quality and quantity of research. In fiscal year 2011, Penn topped the Ivy League in academic research spending with an $814 million budget, involving some 4,000 faculty, 1,100 postdoctoral fellows and 5,400 support staff/graduate assistants. As one of the most active and prolific research institutions, Penn is associated with several important innovations and discoveries in many fields of science and the humanities. Among them are the first general purpose electronic computer (ENIAC), the rubella and hepatitis B vaccines, Retin-A, cognitive therapy, conjoint analysis and others.

Penn's academic and research programs are led by a large and highly productive faculty. Nine Penn faculty members or graduates have won a Nobel Prize in the last ten years. Over its long history the university has also produced many distinguished alumni. These include twelve heads of state (including one U.S. President), three United States Supreme Court justices, and supreme court justices of other states, founders of technology companies, international law firms and global financial institutions, and university presidents. According to a 2014 study, the University of Pennsylvania has produced the most billionaires of any university at the undergraduate level. Penn's endowment, at $9.6 billion in 2014, is the tenth largest university endowment in the United States and the thirtieth largest on a per-student basis.

Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (/ˈrʌtɡərz/), commonly referred to as Rutgers University, Rutgers, or RU, is an American public research university and the largest institution for higher education in New Jersey.

Originally chartered as Queen's College on November 10, 1766, Rutgers is the eighth-oldest college in the United States and one of the nine "Colonial Colleges" founded before the American Revolution. The college was renamed Rutgers College in 1825 in honor of Colonel Henry Rutgers (1745–1830), a New York City landowner, philanthropist and former military officer, whose generous donation to the school allowed it to reopen after years of financial difficulty. For most of its existence, Rutgers was a private liberal arts college affiliated with the Dutch Reformed Church and admitted only male students. The college expanded its role in research and instruction in agriculture, engineering, and science when it was named as the state's sole land-grant college in 1864 under the Morrill Act of 1862. It gained university status in 1924 with the introduction of graduate education and further expansion. However, Rutgers evolved into a coeducational public research university after being designated "The State University of New Jersey" by the New Jersey Legislature in laws enacted in 1945 and 1956. It is one of only two colonial colleges that later became public universities. Rutgers, however, remains something of a public-private hybrid, in particular retaining certain "private rights" against unilateral changes in its governance, name, and structure that the state might otherwise want to impose.

Rutgers has three campuses located throughout New Jersey: The New Brunswick campus in New Brunswick and adjacent Piscataway, the Newark campus and the Camden campus. The university has additional facilities elsewhere in New Jersey. Instruction is offered by 9,000 faculty members in 175 academic departments to over 45,000 undergraduate students and more than 20,000 graduate and professional students.

The University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and is a member of the Committee on Institutional Cooperation, the Association of American Universities and the Universities Research Association

CamdenLawBusiness

Rutgers Law School is a public law school of Rutgers University located in Camden, New Jersey on the Delaware Waterfront. It is one of two unified law schools of Rutgers University, the other located in Newark, and one of only two law schools in the state of New Jersey. The law school is located on the main campus of Rutgers–Camden, just 3 miles (4.8 km) away from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania via the immediately neighboring Benjamin Franklin Bridge. The law school officially merged with Rutgers School of Law-Newark in August 2015, after gaining ABA approval, creating a unified Rutgers Law School.

Originally opened in 1926 as "South Jersey Law School" by Collingswood mayor and businessperson Arthur E. Armitage, Sr. and an interested group of citizens, the law school merged with Rutgers University in 1950. The school is approved by the American Bar Association and is a member of the Association of American Law Schools. Students are graduates of 140 different colleges and universities. The school consistently ranks in the second tier of law schools in the nation and is currently ranked 91st among the Top 100 law schools in the 2013 edition of U.S. News & World Report's "Best Graduate Schools", but has ranked higher in previous years (i.e. 65th in 2006, 2007, 2009). The school's legal writing program is ranked 11th in the nation by U.S. News and has been consistently ranked among the top legal writing programs in the past decade. Its part-time program was ranked 9th in the nation for 2013.

In January 2009, Rutgers Law School, in Camden, completed construction of a new facility designed by Ayers Saint Gross. The 53,000 square feet (4,900 m2) addition to the existing law school cost approximately $24 million and added classrooms, office space, and the 'Archer & Greiner Moot Courtroom.' The project included renovations in the existing facility, expanded social areas and clinical space. A two-story glass bridge spans Fifth Street in Camden and is visible to travelers on the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

Over its long history the university has also produced many distinguished alumni. These include twelve heads of state (including one U.S. President), three United States Supreme Court justices, and supreme court justices of other states, founders of technology companies, international law firms and global financial institutions, and university presidents. According to a 2014 study, the University of Pennsylvania has produced the most billionaires of any university at the undergraduate level. Penn's endowment, at $9.6 billion in 2014, is the tenth largest university endowment in the United States and the thirtieth largest on a per-student basis.

Doane Academy

Burlington

Doane Academy is a coeducational independent private day school located in Burlington, New Jersey. It was founded as St. Mary's Hall in May 1837 by the Right Reverend George Washington Doane, the second Episcopal bishop of New Jersey, and is recognized as the first all-girls, academic boarding school in the United States. Originally founded to offer an education equal to that of men, it accepted girls and young women as undergraduates and postgraduates. In 1966 an all-boys school, Doane Academy, was opened in Burlington in association with St. Mary's Hall. In 1974, the two schools merged to form the co-educational St. Mary's Hall-Doane Academy. In April 2008 the name was shortened to Doane Academy.

Three buildings on campus are of historical importance, including the Chapel of the Holy Innocents, which has been called the first Gothic cruciform church in the United States. The building has been recorded in the Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS), with measured drawings held by the Library of Congress. The campus is currently expanding, with the construction of Rowan Hall (Nov 2014), a three-story building which will add eleven classrooms as well as meeting and administrative spaces.

The school has been accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools Commission on Secondary Schools since 1989.

As of the 2014-15 school year, the school had an enrollment of 205 students and 30 classroom teachers (on an FTE basis), for a student–teacher ratio of approximately 7:1.

On January 9, 2015, the school announced that Mr. Henry M. Rowan and his wife, long-time benefactors, had established a $17 million endowment for Doane Academy, with the proceeds available to the school in perpetuity. Because of their generous donation, Doane Academy is building another building connecting Scarborough Hall (1912) and Odenheimer Hall (1869) in their honor called Rowan Hall. Construction is to be finished by the 2015-2016 school year. The Rowan Family Foundation continues to support the school at a high level.

Doane Academy is a member of NJAIS, NAIS and NAES.

The Delaware College of Art and Design (DCAD) was founded in 1997 through a partnership between the Pratt Institute and the Corcoran College of Art and Design. DCAD’s mission is to educate talented and committed students to become art makers, idea generators, problem solvers, and visual communicators who can redefine the way we perceive and experience the world around us. DCAD’s associate of fine arts (AFA) degree program is offered in six disciplines: Animation, Fine Arts, Graphic Design, Illustration, Interior Design, and Photography. Apart from the traditional disciplines of the fine artist, these include opportunities in publishing, marketing, computer graphics, advertising, packaging, display design, and photography. In addition to studio courses, courses in art history and writing and literature (combined) complete the curriculum. Most students transfer to other colleges that offer the BFA degree; Pratt, Corcoran, MICA, RISD, the School of the Chicago Art Institute, PAFA, UArts, and the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston are but some of the fine schools to which students are accepted and attend. The College is independently accredited regionally by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education and nationally by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design.

DCAD offers apartment style dormitories in the Saville Apartments directly across Sixth Street from the studio and academic facilities at 600 N. Market Street, and in the next block to the north at 707 N. King Street. A multi-million dollar (4.7m US$) expansion in student housing opened for Fall 2012 in response to a significant increase in requests for on-campus residency. The former hotel's kitchen has been transformed into a student cafeteria for all resident and commuting students. The 600 N. Market building was the initial opening site for the College with an entering student population of 50. The Copeland Student Center, located in the Market Street side of the Saville Apartment building, opened in March 2009. It provides a student lounge, bookstore and in-house art supply area. On the first floor of the N. Market Street side of the 707 building, Jerry's Artarama modifies its paradigm and will open their first urban retail location. Wilmington and the area have been without a full-service art and materials store for many years; the result of this partnership with DCAD marks the first "destination" retail store opening in Wilmington in its latest revitalization.

The Office of Student Services is responsible for overseeing the general welfare of students, offering support services and for planning both recreational and educational activities. Support services offered are career counseling, health and safety education, academic support, and personal counseling. A Student Council facilitates participation and input from the student body.

Delaware Valley University is a private institution that was founded in 1896. It has a total undergraduate enrollment of 1,807, its setting is suburban, and the campus size is 570 acres. Located in Doylestown, Pennsylvania, DelVal offers more than 25 undergraduate majors, six master’s programs, a doctoral program, and a variety of adult education courses.

In 2011, the college dedicated its new 398-acre Gemmill Campus in Jamison, PA, after a gift from the Gemmill family of land and money in order to further the college's strategic plan, which involves moving to become a university in 2014. Structural changes, such as dividing the college into four distinct schools, are in preparation for this change. Besides the School of Agriculture and Environmental Science, the college has the School of Life and Physical Science, the School of Business and Humanities, and the School of Graduate and Professional Studies. Within Business and Humanities may be found a variety of majors, including Business, Secondary Education, Counseling Psychology, Criminal Justice, and English/Media.

In 2015, DelVal was recognized among the top 30 "great small colleges for a counseling degree." The program offers advanced training in counseling which includes electives in substance abuse, developmental disabilities and behavior modifications.

The School of Graduate and Professional Studies boasts six master's degrees – counseling psychology, policy studies, educational leadership, special education, teaching and learning, and an MBA – as well as a doctoral degree in educational leadership. In spring 2015, DelVal was given approval for a physician assistant program, which will be in place by 2018.

DelVal, as it is commonly called, had a for-credit employment program that required students to work 500 hours in an area of their major; however, this program is now evolving into a more comprehensive experiential learning program, called E360. The program is part of the college’s legacy of linking theoretical learning with practical training. At DelVal, students learn by doing. Each department at the college is incorporating E360 into its curriculum.

Many graduates of Delaware Valley University take positions with the pharmaceutical and food industries, work in government or business, go on to become veterinarians or start their own companies.

In December 2014 the Delaware Valley College Board of Trustees announced plans to expand the College into a university.

Haverford College

HaverfordPhilosophy

Haverford College (/ˈhævərfərd/ HA-vər-fərd) is a private, coeducational liberal arts college located in Haverford, Pennsylvania, United States, a suburb of Philadelphia. All students of the College are undergraduates, and nearly all reside on campus.

The college was founded in 1833 by area members of the Orthodox Philadelphia Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) to ensure an education grounded in Quaker values for young Quaker men. Although the college no longer has a formal religious affiliation, the Quaker philosophy still influences campus life. Originally an all-male institution, Haverford began admitting female transfer students in the 1970s and became fully co-educational in 1980. Currently, more than half of Haverford's students are women. For most of the 20th century, Haverford's total enrollment was kept below 300, but the school went through two periods of expansion after the 1970s, and its current enrollment is 1,190 students.

Haverford is a member of the Tri-College Consortium, which allows students to register for courses at both Bryn Mawr College and Swarthmore College. It is also a member of the Quaker Consortium ("Penn-Pal") which allows students to cross-register at the College of General Studies and the Wharton School of Business at the University of Pennsylvania.

The college has produced 67 Fulbright Scholars, 62 Watson Fellows, 24 Goldwater Scholars, 20 Rhodes Scholars, 18 Guggenheim Fellows, 4 MacArthur Fellows, and 3 Nobel Prize Recipients.
