Caldwell University (formerly Caldwell College and originally Caldwell College for Women) is a Catholic liberal arts university in Caldwell, New Jersey, United States. Founded in 1939 by the Sisters of St. Dominic, the University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, chartered by the State of New Jersey and registered with the Regents of the University of the State of New York.

The school is located in suburban New Jersey, and it is about 20 miles from Manhattan. Caldwell offers 28 major programs, and the expanding graduate division now offers the Master of Arts and the Master of Business Administration, two Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certificate programs, and four Post-Master programs.

In 2013, Caldwell College received approval for University Status and changed its name to Caldwell University on July 1, 2014.[2]

Location[edit]

The university is located on a thirty-five acre campus along Essex County Route 506 (Bloomfield Avenue) and shares the land with the Sisters of St. Dominic's Caldwell convent and Mount Saint Dominic Academy, an all-girls Catholic high school.

Academics[edit]

Caldwell University offers various programs of study in the liberal arts and sciences leading to the degree of Bachelor of Arts, Bachelor of Fine Arts, or Bachelor of Science. The backbone of the College is the core curriculum, in which the students are required to take courses in history, philosophy, religion, music, art, mathematics, foreign languages, communications, science and social science. The core accounts for 45-49 credits for students. [1]

The university has affiliations and programs with New York University, Seton Hall University, American University, Columbia University, Rutgers University, the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and a host of other schools. In 2009, the college established its first Doctoral Program in Applied Behavior Analysis. [2]. In 2011, the college opened the Center for Autism and Applied Behavior Analysis to provide intervention services for individuals with autism, to train graduate and undergraduate students in ABA, and to provide autism research.

In 2014 CBS News reported that a lawsuit was unsealed that alleged Caldwell University was involved in a scam to overcharge Military Veterans for classes originally offered through the college, then ultimately taken through the unaccredited Penn Foster Career School, at a higher than normal tuition rate.[3]

Athletics[edit]

The Department of Athletics oversees all athletic programs at the College. Caldwell University teams participate as a member of the National Collegiate Athletic Association's Division II. The Cougars are a member of the Central Atlantic Collegiate Conference (CACC).
