Walsh University successfully combines the personal attention of a small college with the academic resources of a flourishing university. Founded by the Brothers of Christian Instruction in 1960, Walsh University has grown from a campus of 2 buildings on 50 acres to a campus of 25 buildings and 136 acres with three satellite campuses throughout Northeast, Ohio; an MAED program in Uganda, Africa; and a campus just outside of Rome, Italy in the Pope’s summer home of Castel Gandolfo.
In recent years, Walsh has experienced phenomenal growth, featuring new state-of-the-art classrooms, labs and residence halls. Walsh students can choose from 60 undergraduate major programs; 7 graduate programs, including Doctorate in Physical Therapy, a new Master of Science in Nursing, and Doctorate of Nursing Practice.
With 3,000 students from 15 states and 31 countries, Walsh’s enrollment has grown 75% since 2002.
Walsh is one of only 111 universities nationally named a “Great College to Work For” by The Chronicle of Higher Education. Walsh was also one of only 10 universities in Ohio to be listed in the College of Distinction annual college guide and one of only 22 universities in the United States to be accepted into the prestigious International Federation of Catholic Universities (IFCU). In addition, for the fifth year in a row, Walsh is listed on the President’s Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll which celebrates exemplary commitment to service and volunteering from institutions of higher education.
