Also known as WashU and WUSTL, Washington University in St. Louis is located in Greater St. Louis. It is a private research university with its main campus in Danforth.

The university was founded in 1853. Named after George Washington, it was established by 17 Saint Louis leaders who wanted to do something about the lack of higher education institutions in the Midwest. In the first three years of its founding, the university went through three different names. Then widely known as Washington Institute, it was changed in 1856 to Washington University. It was only in 1976 when its Board of Trustees added “in St. Louis” to make it distinct from other universities with Washington’s name.
In the later half of the 20th century, the university evolved from a strong regional university into a national research-based institute. Currently, most, if not all, of the university’s faculties engage in scholarly research. Moreover, the university espouses an interdisciplinary and interdepartmental approach to research across its schools and research institutions.
