Brief History About Clark University
Clark University is a prestigious private institution of higher learning located in Worcester, Massachusetts. Clark University was one of the first contemporary research universities in the United States. It was founded in 1887 and received a significant donation from its namesake Jonas Gilman Clark, who was a well-known industrialist.
After beginning as a school for just graduate students, Clark University admitted its first undergraduates in the year 1902 and admitted its first female students in the year 1942.
The institution now provides students with the opportunity to construct their own technical majors and participate in pre-professional programs, in addition to providing 46 different majors, minors, and emphases in the humanities, social sciences, natural sciences, and engineering.
Clark University is a member of the Higher Education Consortium of Central Massachusetts, which enables students to cross-register for classes at other local institutions such as Worcester Polytechnic Institute and the College of the Holy Cross. The university is known for its programs in the fields of psychology, geography, physics, biology, and entrepreneurship.
As a liberal arts–based research university, Clark University makes important research opportunities available to its students, especially at the undergraduate level through LEEP project funding. Clark is also respected for its environment as the second smallest university among the top 66 national universities by U.S. News & World Report and as one of 40 Colleges That Change Lives.
Clark University is an R2 doctoral university with high research activities. It left the Association of American Universities in 1999.
