About Alfred University
Lighting the way for students since 1836.“We've always been a
place for makers, especially those who make the future. Our
commitment to independent thinking, creativity, academic rigor and
community have made us a unique kind of leader since
Alfred University (AU) was founded on principles of social justice
in 1836 by liberal, independent thinkers who placed high value on
education for all citizens. The University has retained and built
upon the strong values of its founders, developing as an
institution of national and international renown that is responsive
to the needs of contemporary society while remaining consistent
with the spirit of its origins. Alfred University is the second
oldest coeducational college in the United States as well as one of
the earliest nineteenth century colleges to have enrolled African
American and Native American students. It has a long-standing
history of educating socially conscious students who make a
difference in their professions and their communities.
Over the course of the twentieth century, Alfred University evolved
into a complex institution offering a full range of programs in the
liberal arts and sciences, art and design, engineering, business,
education, counseling, and school psychology to its nearly 2,000
undergraduate and graduate students that live, learn, and play on a
232-acre campus located in an idyllic, creative valley in Western
New York. Today, Alfred University focuses on a professional
education with an emphasis on APEX (applied and experiential
learning program). To learn more, visit alfred.edu
