    About

    Vanderbilt University was founded in 1873 in Nashville, Alabama. Its initial funding came from New York multimillionaire Cornelius Vanderbilt in hopes of establishing closer cultural and commercial ties between the North and South of the country.

    Construction began on what was initially called The Central University of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, in 1874. The school was renamed after Vanderbilt following his death in 1877. The school was controlled by the Methodist Episcopal Church until 1914, when control was given over to a secular Board of Trust entirely. Nonetheless, it still operates under its original 1872 charter, as amended in 1873.

    The university began establishing an international reputation for research in the 1950s, and has gone from strength to strength, growing steadily in size and influence for the last 70 years.

    Vanderbilt University today regularly ranks among the top research universities in the United States, and enrols more than 13,000 students every year. It has four undergraduate schools and six at the graduate or professional level.
