Formerly known as Collegiate School and renamed Yale College in recognition of its founder Elihu Yale, the Yale University was established in 1701. It is an American Ivy League private research university in New Haven, Connecticut, United States of America (USA). In 1701, the General Court of Connecticut had a meeting and it passed an act- ‘An Act for Liberty to Erect a Collegiate School'. It was started, in the first place, to train Congregationalist ministers in sacred languages and theology. Later on, sciences and humanities were incorporated in the institute's curriculum.
