Syracuse University is a private, coeducational, residential university with 12,000 undergraduate and 4,500 graduate students. Since it opened in 1871, Syracuse has grown from a small Methodist liberal arts college to a nonsectarian university with 15 schools and colleges. The Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, which includes the Department of Geography and the cartography program, consists of the university's social sciences departments, a widely recognized graduate program in public administration, and several related interdisciplinary programs. Facilities supporting cartography include a large map collection in the university library, the Advanced Graphics Research Laboratory, and a number of relevant courses in the School of Information Studies, the School of Computer and Information Science, and the Newhouse School of Public Communications.
