harvard university, harvard university tuition
Harvard University is a private, Ivy League research university in Cambridge, Massachusetts, established in 1636, whose history, influence, and wealth have made it one of the world's most prestigious universities

Established originally by the Massachusetts legislature and soon thereafter named for John Harvard its first benefactor, Harvard is the United States' oldest institution of higher learning, and the Harvard Corporation formally, the President and Fellows of Harvard College is its first chartered corporation Although never formally affiliated with any denomination, the early College primarily trained Congregationalist and Unitarian clergy Its curriculum and student body were gradually secularized during the 18th century, and by the 19th century Harvard had emerged as the central cultural establishment among Boston elites Following the American Civil War, President Charles W Eliot's long tenure 1869–1909 transformed the college and affiliated professional schools into a modern research university; Harvard was a founding member of the Association of American Universities in 1900 James Bryant Conant led the university through the Great Depression and World War II and began to reform the curriculum and liberalize admissions after the war The undergraduate college became coeducational after its 1977 merger with Radcliffe College

The University is organized into eleven separate academic units—ten faculties and the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study—with campuses throughout the Boston metropolitan area: its 209-acre 85 ha main campus is centered on Harvard Yard in Cambridge, approximately 3 miles 5 km northwest of Boston; the business school and athletics facilities, including Harvard Stadium, are located across the Charles River in the Allston neighborhood of Boston and the medical, dental, and public health schools are in the Longwood Medical Area Harvard's $376 billion financial endowment is the largest of any academic institution

Harvard is a large, highly residential research university The nominal cost of attendance is high, but the University's large endowment allows it to offer generous financial aid packages It operates several arts, cultural, and scientific museums, alongside the Harvard Library, which is the world's largest academic and private library system, comprising 79 individual libraries with over 18 million volumes Harvard's alumni include eight US presidents, several foreign heads of state, 62 living billionaires, 335 Rhodes Scholars, and 242 Marshall Scholars To date, some 130 Nobel laureates, 18 Fields Medalists and 13 Turing Award winners have been affiliated as students, faculty, or staff

Main article: History of Harvard University


The official seal of the Harvard Corporation Found on Harvard diplomas, it carries the University's original motto, Christo et Ecclesiae "Christ and Church", later changed to Veritas "Truth" Engraving of Harvard College by Paul Revere, 1767

Harvard was formed in 1636 by vote of the Great and General Court of the Massachusetts Bay Colony It was initially called "New College" or "the college at New Towne" In 1638, the college became home to British North America's first known printing press In 1639, the college was renamed Harvard College after deceased clergyman John Harvard, who was an alumnus of the University of Cambridge He had left the school £779 and his library of some 400 books The charter creating the Harvard Corporation was granted in 1650

In the early years the College trained many Puritan ministers A 1643 publication said the school's purpose was "to advance learning and perpetuate it to posterity, dreading to leave an illiterate ministry to the churches when our present ministers shall lie in the dust" It offered a classic curriculum on the English university model—​​many leaders in the colony had attended the University of Cambridge—​​but conformed to the tenets of Puritanism It was never affiliated with any particular denomination, but many of its earliest graduates went on to become clergymen in Congregational and Unitarian churches

The leading Boston divine Increase Mather served as president from 1685 to 1701 In 1708, John Leverett became the first president who was not also a clergyman, which marked a turning of the college toward intellectual independence from Puritanism

19th century

Throughout the 18th century, Enlightenment ideas of the power of reason and free will became widespread among Congregationalist ministers, putting those ministers and their congregations in tension with more traditionalist, Calvinist parties:1–4 When the Hollis Professor of Divinity David Tappan died in 1803 and the president of Harvard Joseph Willard died a year later, in 1804, a struggle broke out over their replacements Henry Ware was elected to the chair in 1805, and the liberal Samuel Webber was appointed to the presidency of Harvard two years later, which signaled the changing of the tide from the dominance of traditional ideas at Harvard to the dominance of liberal, Arminian ideas defined by traditionalists as Unitarian ideas:4–5:24

In 1846, the natural history lectures of Louis Agassiz were acclaimed both in New York and on the campus at Harvard College Agassiz's approach was distinctly idealist and posited Americans' "participation in the Divine Nature" and the possibility of understanding "intellectual existences" Agassiz's perspective on science combined observation with intuition and the assumption that a person can grasp the "divine plan" in all phenomena When it came to explaining life-forms, Agassiz resorted to matters of shape based on a presumed archetype for his evidence This dual view of knowledge was in concert with the teachings of Common Sense Realism derived from Scottish philosophers Thomas Reid and Dugald Stewart, whose works were part of the Harvard curriculum at the time The popularity of Agassiz's efforts to "soar with Plato" probably also derived from other writings to which Harvard students were exposed, including Platonic treatises by Ralph Cudworth, John Norris and, in a Romantic vein, Samuel Taylor Coleridge The library records at Harvard reveal that the writings of Plato and his early modern and Romantic followers were almost as regularly read during the 19th century as those of the "official philosophy" of the more empirical and more deistic Scottish school

Charles W Eliot, president 1869–1909, eliminated the favored position of Christianity from the curriculum while opening it to student self-direction While Eliot was the most crucial figure in the secularization of American higher education, he was motivated not by a desire to secularize education, but by Transcendentalist Unitarian convictions Derived from William Ellery Channing and Ralph Waldo Emerson, these convictions were focused on the dignity and worth of human nature, the right and ability of each person to perceive truth, and the indwelling God in each person

20th century

During the 20th century, Harvard's international reputation grew as a burgeoning endowment and prominent professors expanded the university's scope Rapid enrollment growth continued as new graduate schools were begun and the undergraduate College expanded Radcliffe College, established in 1879 as sister school of Harvard College, became one of the most prominent schools for women in the United States Harvard became a founding member of the Association of American Universities in 1900

In the early 20th century, the student body was predominately "old-stock, high-status Protestants, especially Episcopalians, Congregationalists, and Presbyterians"—a group later called "WASPs" White Anglo-Saxon Protestants By the 1970s it was much more diversified

James Bryant Conant president, 1933–1953 reinvigorated creative scholarship to guarantee its preeminence among research institutions He saw higher education as a vehicle of opportunity for the talented rather than an entitlement for the wealthy, so Conant devised programs to identify, recruit, and support talented youth In 1943, he asked the faculty make a definitive statement about what general education ought to be, at the secondary as well as the college level The resulting Report, published in 1945, was one of the most influential manifestos in the history of American education in the 20th century

In 1945–1960 admissions policies were opened up to bring in students from a more diverse applicant pool No longer drawing mostly from rich alumni of select New England prep schools, the undergraduate college was now open to striving middle class students from public schools; many more Jews and Catholics were admitted, but few blacks, Hispanics or Asians

Harvard graduate schools began admitting women in small numbers in the late 19th century, and during World War II, students at Radcliffe College which since 1879 had been paying Harvard professors to repeat their lectures for women students began attending Harvard classes alongside men, The first class of women was admitted to Harvard Medical School in 1945 Since the 1970s Harvard has been responsible for essentially all aspects of admission, instruction, and undergraduate life for women, and Radcliffe was formally merged into Harvard in 1999

Main article: Harvard University endowment

Harvard has the largest university endowment in the world As of September 2011, it had nearly regained the loss suffered during the 2008 recession It was worth $32 billion in 2011, up from $28 billion in September 2010 and $26 billion in 2009 It suffered about 30% loss in 2008–09 In December 2008, Harvard announced that its endowment had lost 22% approximately $8 billion from July to October 2008, necessitating budget cuts Later reports suggest the loss was actually more than double that figure, a reduction of nearly 50% of its endowment in the first four months alone Forbes in March 2009 estimated the loss to be in the range of $12 billion One of the most visible results of Harvard's attempt to re-balance its budget was their halting of construction of the $12 billion Allston Science Complex that had been scheduled to be completed by 2011, resulting in protests from local residents As of 2012, Harvard University had a total financial aid reserve of $159 million for students, and a Pell Grant reserve of $4093 million available for disbursement


Since the 1970s, several campaigns have sought to divest Harvard's endowment from holdings the campaigns opposed, including investments in apartheid South Africa, the tobacco industry, Sudan during the Darfur genocide, and the fossil fuel industry

During the divestment from South Africa movement in the late 1980s, student activists erected a symbolic "shantytown" on Harvard Yard and blockaded a speech given by South African Vice Consul Duke Kent-Brown The Harvard Management Company repeatedly refused to divest, stating that "operating expenses must not be subject to financially unrealistic strictures or carping by the unsophisticated or by special interest groups" However, the university did eventually reduce its South African holdings by $230 million out of $400 million in response to the pressure



Undergraduate admission to Harvard is characterized by the Carnegie Foundation as "more selective, lower transfer-in" Harvard College accepted 53% of applicants for the class of 2019, a record low and the second lowest acceptance rate among all national universities Harvard College ended its early admissions program in 2007 as the program was believed to disadvantage low-income and under-represented minority applicants applying to selective universities, yet for the class of 2016 an Early Action program was reintroduced

The undergraduate admissions office's preference for children of alumni policies have been the subject of scrutiny and debate as it primarily aids Caucasians and the wealthy and seems to conflict with the concept of meritocratic admissions

Teaching and learning

Massachusetts Hall 1720, Harvard's oldest building Harvard Yard

Harvard is a large, highly residential research university The university has been accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges since 1929 The university offers 46 undergraduate concentrations majors, 134 graduate degrees, and 32 professional degrees For the 2008–2009 academic year, Harvard granted 1,664 baccalaureate degrees, 400 master's degrees, 512 doctoral degrees, and 4,460 professional degrees

The four-year, full-time undergraduate program comprises a minority of enrollments at the university and emphasizes instruction with an "arts and sciences focus" Between 1978 and 2008, entering students were required to complete a core curriculum of seven classes outside of their concentration Since 2008, undergraduate students have been required to complete courses in eight General Education categories: Aesthetic and Interpretive Understanding, Culture and Belief, Empirical and Mathematical Reasoning, Ethical Reasoning, Science of Living Systems, Science of the Physical Universe, Societies of the World, and United States in the World Harvard offers a comprehensive doctoral graduate program and there is a high level of coexistence between graduate and undergraduate degrees The Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, The New York Times, and some students have criticized Harvard for its reliance on teaching fellows for some aspects of undergraduate education; they consider this to adversely affect the quality of education

Harvard's academic programs operate on a semester calendar beginning in early September and ending in mid-May Undergraduates typically take four half-courses per term and must maintain a four-course rate average to be considered full-time In many concentrations, students can elect to pursue a basic program or an honors-eligible program requiring a senior thesis and/or advanced course work Students graduating in the top 4–5% of the class are awarded degrees summa cum laude, students in the next 15% of the class are awarded magna cum laude, and the next 30% of the class are awarded cum laude Harvard has chapters of academic honor societies such as Phi Beta Kappa and various committees and departments also award several hundred named prizes annually Harvard, along with other universities, has been accused of grade inflation, although there is evidence that the quality of the student body and its motivation have also increased Harvard College reduced the number of students who receive Latin honors from 90% in 2004 to 60% in 2005 Moreover, the honors of "John Harvard Scholar" and "Harvard College Scholar" will now be given only to the top 5 percent and the next 5 percent of each class

University policy is to expel students engaging in academic dishonesty to discourage a "culture of cheating" In 2012, dozens of students were expelled for cheating after an investigation of more than 120 students In 2013, there was a report that as many as 42% of incoming freshmen had cheated on homework prior to entering the university, and these incidents have prompted the university to consider adopting an honor code

For the 2012–13 school year annual tuition was $38,000, with a total cost of attendance of $57,000 Beginning 2007, families with incomes below $60,000 pay nothing for their children to attend, including room and board Families with incomes between $60,000 to $80,000 pay only a few thousand dollars per year, and families earning between $120,000 and $180,000 pay no more than 10% of their annual incomes In 2009, Harvard offered grants totaling $414 million across all eleven divisions; $340 million came from institutional funds, $35 million from federal support, and $39 million from other outside support Grants total 88% of Harvard's aid for undergraduate students, with aid also provided by loans 8% and work-study 4%


Harvard is a founding member of the Association of American Universities and remains a research university with "very high" research activity and a "comprehensive" doctoral program across the arts, sciences, engineering, and medicine Research and development expenditures in 2011 totaled $6497 million, 27th among American universities

Libraries and museums

Widener Library anchors the Harvard University Library system

The Harvard University Library System is centered in Widener Library in Harvard Yard and comprises nearly 80 individual libraries holding over 18 million volumes According to the American Library Association, this makes it the largest academic library in the United States, and one of the largest in the world Cabot Science Library, Lamont Library, and Widener Library are three of the most popular libraries for undergraduates to use, with easy access and central locations There are rare books, manuscripts and other special collections throughout Harvard's libraries; Houghton Library, the Arthur and Elizabeth Schlesinger Library on the History of Women in America, and the Harvard University Archives consist principally of rare and unique materials America's oldest collection of maps, gazetteers, and atlases both old and new is stored in Pusey Library and open to the public The largest collection of East-Asian language material outside of East Asia is held in the Harvard-Yenching Library

Main article: Harvard Crimson Harvard Stadium, home of Harvard Crimson and the Boston Cannons Harvard men's eight crew at Henley, 2004 The Cornell–Harvard hockey rivalry match, 2006

The Harvard Crimson competes in 42 intercollegiate sports in the NCAA Division I Ivy League Harvard has an intense athletic rivalry with Yale University culminating in The Game, although the Harvard–Yale Regatta predates the football game This rivalry, though, is put aside every two years when the Harvard and Yale Track and Field teams come together to compete against a combined Oxford University and Cambridge University team, a competition that is the oldest continuous international amateur competition in the world

Harvard's athletic rivalry with Yale is intense in every sport in which they meet, coming to a climax each fall in the annual football meeting, which dates back to 1875 and is usually called simply "The Game" While Harvard's football team is no longer one of the country's best as it often was a century ago during football's early days it won the Rose Bowl in 1920, both it and Yale have influenced the way the game is played In 1903, Harvard Stadium introduced a new era into football with the first-ever permanent reinforced concrete stadium of its kind in the country The stadium's structure actually played a role in the evolution of the college game Seeking to reduce the alarming number of deaths and serious injuries in the sport, Walter Camp former captain of the Yale football team, suggested widening the field to open up the game But the stadium was too narrow to accommodate a wider playing surface So, other steps had to be taken Camp would instead support revolutionary new rules for the 1906 season These included legalizing the forward pass, perhaps the most significant rule change in the sport's history

Harvard has several athletic facilities, such as the Lavietes Pavilion, a multi-purpose arena and home to the Harvard basketball teams The Malkin Athletic Center, known as the "MAC", serves both as the university's primary recreation facility and as a satellite location for several varsity sports The five-story building includes two cardio rooms, an Olympic-size swimming pool, a smaller pool for aquaerobics and other activities, a mezzanine, where all types of classes are held, an indoor cycling studio, three weight rooms, and a three-court gym floor to play basketball The MAC offers personal trainers and specialty classes It is home to Harvard volleyball, fencing and wrestling The offices of several of the school's varsity coaches are also in the MAC

Weld Boathouse and Newell Boathouse house the women's and men's rowing teams, respectively The men's crew also uses the Red Top complex in Ledyard, Connecticut, as their training camp for the annual Harvard-Yale Regatta The Bright Hockey Center hosts the Harvard hockey teams, and the Murr Center serves both as a home for Harvard's squash and tennis teams as well as a strength and conditioning center for all athletic sports

As of 2013, there were 42 Division I intercollegiate varsity sports teams for women and men at Harvard, more than at any other NCAA Division I college in the country As with other Ivy League universities, Harvard does not offer athletic scholarships

Older than The Game by 23 years, the Harvard-Yale Regatta was the original source of the athletic rivalry between the two schools It is held annually in June on the Thames River in eastern Connecticut The Harvard crew is typically considered to be one of the top teams in the country in rowing Today, Harvard fields top teams in several other sports, such as the Harvard Crimson men's ice hockey team with a strong rivalry against Cornell, squash, and even recently won NCAA titles in Men's and Women's Fencing Harvard also won the Intercollegiate Sailing Association National Championships in 2003

Harvard's men's ice hockey team won the school's first NCAA Championship in any team sport in 1989 Harvard was also the first Ivy League institution to win a NCAA championship title in a women's sport when its women's lacrosse team won the NCAA Championship in 1990

Harvard Undergraduate Television has footage from historical games and athletic events including the 2005 pep-rally before the Harvard-Yale Game

The school color is crimson, which is also the name of the Harvard sports teams and the daily newspaper, The Harvard Crimson The color was unofficially adopted in preference to magenta by an 1875 vote of the student body, although the association with some form of red can be traced back to 1858, when Charles William Eliot, a young graduate student who would later become Harvard's 21st and longest-serving president 1869–1909, bought red bandanas for his crew so they could more easily be distinguished by spectators at a regatta


Harvard has several fight songs, the most played of which, especially at football, are "Ten Thousand Men of Harvard" and "Harvardiana" While "Fair Harvard" is actually the alma mater, "Ten Thousand Men" is better known outside the university The Harvard University Band performs these fight songs, and other cheers, at football and hockey games These were parodied by Harvard alumnus Tom Lehrer in his song "Fight Fiercely, Harvard," which he composed while an undergraduate

Literature and popular culture

The perception of Harvard as a center of either elite achievement, or elitist privilege, has made it a frequent literary and cinematic backdrop "In the grammar of film, Harvard has come to mean both tradition, and a certain amount of stuffiness," film critic Paul Sherman has said
