A Brief History
—South Green Campus Buildings —The University of Delaware traces its origins to a school founded by the Rev. Francis Alison in 1743, which later became the Academy of Newark. In 1833, the state of Delaware chartered its first institute of higher education, called Newark College, in Newark, which was closely tied to the academy. Later known as Delaware College, it—with a coordinate Women's College founded in 1914—became the University of Delaware in 1921.
