Case Western Reserve University (CWRU) was established in 1967 through the merger of Western Reserve University (founded in 1826) and Case Institute of Technology (founded in 1880).

CWRU is organized into eight schools, including the School of Medicine, the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing, the School of Dental Medicine, the School of Law, and the Weatherhead School of Management.
