Suffolk University is a private university in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, situated on Beacon Hill. Founded in 1906 by Gleason Archer, Sr. as the Suffolk School of Law, Suffolk University expanded during the 1930s, adding liberal arts and business programs. Currently, Suffolk University comprises the Suffolk College of Arts and Sciences, the Sawyer Business School, and Suffolk University Law School. The University is also home to the Beacon Hill Institute, a "free-market think-tank." During the 1990s Suffolk University constructed its first residence halls, began satellite programs with other colleges in Massachusetts, and opened campuses in both Madrid, Spain, and Dakar, Senegal, (the Suffolk University Dakar Campus). From 1990 to 2005, its endowment increased over 400%, to $80 million. Suffolk employs nearly 800 full-time and adjunct faculty members, who instruct approximately 8,000 undergraduate and graduate students. Due to its location and well-known law school, Suffolk often attracts notable scholars and prominent speakers; for example, President John F. Kennedy, former Chief Justice of the United States' Supreme Court, William Rehnquist, and former President George H.W. Bush.
