Campus Life

For those studying on campus, Cleveland and Case Western Reserve provide an ideal backdrop for social work and nonprofit education. 

Case Western Reserve University is a leading research institution, known around the world as a center for innovation, a place where students and faculty spend each and every day asking—and discovering—how to solve the biggest issues of today and tomorrow. 

Cleveland is one of “America’s Hottest Cities,” according to Forbes. It’s a place with a thriving nonprofit and social services sector; home to one of the highest concentrations of community development organizations in the country; and known for a world-renowned health care infrastructure. It’s the kind of environment where big ideas meet big opportunities—and we can’t wait to show you.


We’re located in one of the most cultural square miles in the country—home to museums and the renowned Cleveland Orchestra. And we’re just minutes from downtown, where you can find the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame; Playhouse Square; and the Browns, Indians and Cavaliers. Throughout the city, you can experience an incomparable foodie culture, an expansive, impressive park system and so much more.
