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 11,300 students are enrolled, including about 3,450 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 University employs over 25,000 staff and faculty members, and has 112,000 alumni.

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.
