Rowan University was established in 1923 and continues today as a public institution located in the town of Glassboro, New Jersey. The school was founded as Glassboro Normal School. In the 1930s, the school became New Jersey State Teachers College at Glassboro, and then Glassboro College in 1958. In the 1970s, the school added more programs including business, communications and engineering. Finally, in 1997, the school changed to its present day name after a man named Henry Rowan and his wife Betty gave $100 million to the school.
