About Philadelphia University
Philadelphia University, founded in 1884, is a private university located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Philadelphia University's student body consists of about 3,500 individuals from all 50 states and over 30 countries. As an institution, Philadelphia University comprises the School of Architecture, School of Business Administration, School of Science and Health, School of Engineering and Textiles, the School of Liberal Arts, and the School of Design and Media. The institution offers bachelor's degrees, master's degrees and doctoral degrees within the myriad of academic disciplines from within each of the different schools. The university is located in the East Falls neighborhood of Philadelphia.

During the U.S. Centennial celebration in 1876, a group of textile manufacturers, led by Theodore Search, noticed that the quality and variety of American textile products was inferior to those displayed by European mills. To address this problem, the group established the Philadelphia Textile School in 1884 and began a formal educational program for America's textile workers and managers.

Immediately the school was recognized as a key competitive resource in American industry. And, several years later, the Pennsylvania Museum (now the Philadelphia Museum of Art) and the School of Industrial Art invited the Philadelphia Textile School to sign an affiliation. By the mid 1890s, the School had offices located at Broad and Pine Streets in central Philadelphia. The School survived the tough years of the depression and entered a new period of growth at the onset of World War II. In 1941, the school was granted the right to award baccalaureate degrees and to reflect this progress the institution changed its name to the Philadelphia Textile Institute.

By 1949, the School, which was no longer affiliated with the museum, began teaching classes at its present site in the East Falls section of Philadelphia. Facilities, programs and faculty continued to grow in the '50s and '60s. In 1961, the school changed its name to Philadelphia College of Textiles & Science. The student population doubled from 1954 through 1964, and doubled again by 1978. Programs in the arts and sciences and business administration were added. The institution purchased an adjoining property in 1972, doubling the size of its campus.
