About Chatham University

Since its establishment in 1869, Chatham University has seen many changes over the years as it has changed from being an all women’s college to a fully coed institution. Furthermore, it is offering over 60 undergraduate and graduate programs particularly in the field of sustainability, health & wellness, business & communications, and the arts & sciences to over 2,200 students and is still growing.

In almost 150 years of its operation, Chatham has become the alma mater of Chatham University’s environmental icon, Rachel Carson (Class of ’29) and is recognized as the pioneer in the field of sustainability, and has been selected among the Top 50 Green Colleges by The Princeton Review. Other notable alumni soon followed including Lea Wait, Muriel Bowser, and many more till this day.

In 2014, Chatham University made another attempt at building its image as a reputable institution by being the world’s first fully sustainable tertiary education institution — Eden Hall Campus.

Chatham University consists of four main academic schools which are the School of Health Sciences; the Falk School of Sustainability & Environment; the School of Arts, Science & Business; and the College for Continuing & Professional Studies.
