Initially established as the Suffolk School of Law in the Boston neighborhood of Roxbury, Suffolk University has grown into a major academic institution in its near 100-year history. A young lawyer named Gleason L. Archer founded the school in 1906 in the hopes of providing education to the waves of immigrants entering the U.S. at the turn of the century. From its start as a small night school, Suffolk School of Law soon expanded into liberal arts and business programs during the 1930s. Today, Suffolk University is an established part of the Boston academic landscape.
According to its mission statement, Suffolk University is "dedicated to education students in the arts & sciences, business and law so that they may become successful and conscientious citizens of the world. Across the undergraduate, graduate and professional schools, Suffolk integrates theoretical and practical knowledge, instilling in students a passion for critical analysis and a desire for continuous learning."
