Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is located in Edwardsville, Illinois and is the younger of the two constituent institutions of Southern Illinois University. The school was established in 1957. SIUE’s programs consist of Liberal Arts and General, Business, Dental Medicine, Education, Engineering, Nursing and Pharmacy. The school is accredited to give degrees for both undergraduate and graduate programs. According to the US News & World Report: America's best colleges of 2008, SIUE is considered a top tier school in the midwest masters category and ranks in the top ten midwest masters public colleges. There is no Illinois public university ranked higher than SIUE in that category. SIUE is in the top one-third of all public and private Midwestern universities. In addition, SIUE was heralded by U.S. News for a third consecutive year in the senior capstone experience category, among 13 elite universities—including Harvard, MIT, Brown, Duke and Princeton—for its comprehensive programs measuring the competency of graduating seniors. Southern Illinois University Edwardsville’s School of Business has been ranked as a Best 290 Business School in the 2008 edition of the Princeton Review. It is also accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB). Only 15% of business schools worldwide are accredited by the AACSB, which is considered to be the premier accrediting body for business education. Southern Illinois University Edwardsville is located on 2,660 acres (4.16 mi², 11 km²) of beautiful rolling hills of trees and lakes (being one of the largest campuses in the U.S. landwise). Total enrollment in 2003 was 13,295 (undergraduate and graduate) students; 2005 had 13,460; 2006 has 13,449. In 2004 there were 68,523 living alumni. The international student population approaches 400 students. The top five countries represented on campus are India, Kenya, Nepal, China and Ghana. Southern Illinois University Edwardsville began as an outgrowth of Southern Illinois University Carbondale. The president of the combined Southern Illinois University system is Glenn Poshard. Glenn Poshard has been surrounded by controversy as of late, having been caught plagiarizing most of his doctor dissertation and masters' thesis.
