University of Rochester
The University of Rochester, named a "new ivy" by Newsweek, is one of the nation's premier coeducational, nonsectarian, independent, research universities. Approximately 10,000 students are enrolled, including about 3,500 full-time graduate students in the University's five prominent schools of graduate study - the Eastman School of Music, the School of Medicine and Dentistry, the William E. Simon School of Business Administration, the School of Nursing, and the Margaret Warner Graduate School of Education and Human Development.
The Warner School is located in LeChase Hall on the River Campus, a few miles south of the urban center of the city of Rochester, NY. Aptly named, the "River Campus" is situated along the scenic banks of the Genesee River and contiguous to an expansive park developed by the noted 19th-century urban landscape architect, Frederick Law Olmstead. The Rochester metropolitan community (population, approximately one million) is the leading business and educational center of western New York and its picturesque Finger Lakes region.
Academic Degrees Offered
The Warner School offers master's and doctoral degree programs in teaching and curriculum; counseling; human development; school leadership; higher education; and educational policy.
The Warner School enrolls approximately 650 full- and part-time students. Students enter the Warner School at various points in their educations and careers. Some enter directly from undergraduate institutions and many have educational work experience.
The faculty consists of more than 45 full-time regular and part-time faculty. Additional adjunct faculty complement Warner's course offerings.
