The University of Pittsburgh was founded as the Pittsburgh Academy in 1787. Today, nearly 35,000 undergraduate and graduate students attend one of 16 Pittsburgh campus schools and colleges or one of the four regional affiliates in Bradford, Greensburg, Johnstown and Titusville. The university offers dozens of programs of study in areas such as engineering, medicine, law, education, public health and social work. Over 12,000 faculty and staff work for the university system.

Researchers collaborate across disciplines and with other universities and corporate partners. The university is leading the way with research in areas such as aging, nanoscience, energy, global health, bioengineering and neuroscience. The Learning Research and Development Center brings together researchers in the cognitive, social and educational sciences to study learning in areas such as science education, translating findings to curricula, assessment, policy and informal educational applications. The Clinical and Translational Science Institute improves efficiencies in applying biomedical advances to improvements in the health of communities.
