About this College
University of Pittsburgh, USA

Founded in 1787, the University of Pittsburgh is one of the oldest institutions of higher education in the United States. Pitt people have defeated polio, unlocked the secrets of DNA, lead the world in organ transplantation, and pioneered TV and heavier-than-air flight, among numerous other accomplishments. 1823 t its first commencement ceremony, the University awards three academic degrees, all of them BAs. (In 2011, Pitt conferred 4,212 baccalaureate degrees, 2,315 master’s degrees, 519 doctoral degrees, and 594 doctorate-professional practice degrees.) 1830 The University moves into a three-story building on Third Street in downtown Pittsburgh that student (and future banker) Thomas Mellon calls “large and imposing.” Early on, some top-floor rooms are rented to students as living quarters. 1845 Pittsburgh’s Great Fire of 1845 destroys some 900 buildings, including the University’s Third Street home—and with it, all of the University’s records, files, books, and scientific equipment. Some trustees want to cease operations, but a local church offers its basement as temporary classroom space until the University can construct a new building. 1893 William Hunter Dammond earns a degree in civil engineering (with honors), becoming the University’s first Black graduate. Dammond is remembered as an engineer, mathematician, professor, and inventor who made noteworthy contributions to the railroad industry, which employed large numbers of African Americans. 1898 Sisters Margaret and Stella Stein, the first women students admitted to the University, graduate with BA degrees, tying for first in their class. Years earlier, their male classmates had voted not to admit women, but the University’s administration, hoping to boost enrollment, had overruled the vote.
