Johns Hopkins University - An American Higher Education Watershed

Founded in 1876, Johns Hopkins University was the first in the United States to propose that "knowledge should be discovered, not just reported", and it was the first university in the United States to offer a doctorate degree and on its campus was found the first instance in the United States where the limitations of liberal arts courses, both in teaching and research where broken. Johns Hopkins University can be called both a pioneer and a model for American education.

Gilman, the first president of the university, believed that teaching and research are closely related, and the success of one depends on the success of the other, and modern universities must do both well.
