Tulane University is a private research institution of higher learning located in New Orleans, Louisiana. Founded in 1834 as the Medical College of Louisiana, it became the 15th medical school in the U.S. In 1847, thirteen years later, the state of Louisiana officially established the medical school as the University of Louisiana. The school began as a public institution, but due to hard times following the Civil War, the university received a large donation of real estate from Paul Tulane and subsequently became a private university. Tulane University is the only university in the United States to have gone from a state public university to a private institution.
