Topics
Vanderbilt University Confidence: 91% Arrow up

Vanderbilt University (also known informally as Vandy) is a private research university founded in 1873 and located in Nashville, Tennessee.

It was named in honor of shipping and rail magnate Cornelius Vanderbilt, who provided the school its initial $1 million endowment despite having never been to the South.

Vanderbilt hoped that his gift and the greater work of the university would help to heal the sectional wounds inflicted by the Civil War.

Research university Confidence: 77% Arrow up

A research university is a university that expects all its tenured and tenure-track faculty to continuously engage in research, as opposed to merely requiring it as a condition of an initial appointment or tenure.

Such universities can be recognized by their strong focus on innovative research and the prestige of their brand names.

On the one hand, research universities strive to recruit faculty who are the most brilliant minds in their disciplines in the world, and their students enjoy the opportunity to learn from such experts.

On the other hand, new students are often disappointed to realize their undergraduate courses at research universities are overly academic and fail to provide vocational training with immediate "real world" applications; but many employers value degrees from research universities because they know that such coursework develops fundamental skills like critical thinking.

Nashville, Tennessee Confidence: 74% Arrow up

Nashville is the capital of the U.S. state of Tennessee and the county seat of Davidson County.

It is located on the Cumberland River in the north central part of the state.

The city is a center for the music, healthcare, publishing, banking and transportation industries, and home to numerous colleges and universities.It is known as a center of the country music industry, earning it the nickname "Music City, U.S.A.".

Undergraduate education Confidence: 73% Arrow up

Undergraduate education is the post-secondary education previous to the postgraduate education.

It includes all the academic programs up to the level of a bachelor's degree.

For example, in the United States an entry level university student is known as an undergraduate, while students of higher degrees are known as graduates.

In some other educational systems and subjects, undergraduate education is post-secondary education up to the level of a master's degree; this is the case for some science courses in Britain and some medicine courses in Europe.

Private university Confidence: 70% Arrow up

Private universities are not operated by governments, although many receive tax breaks, public student loans, and grants.

Depending on their location, private universities may be subject to government regulation.

This is in contrast to public universities and national universities.

Most private universities are non-profit organizations.
