In 1869, SIU was founded as a teacher's college named Southern Illinois Normal University. It began with twelve academic departments, and an initial class of 143. The university remained a teacher's college until Delyte W. Morris took office as president of the university 1948. Morris was SIU's longest serving (1948-1970) president. and during his presidency, SIU was transformed from a teacher's college, to the second-ranking public comprehensive research university in Illinois.[citation needed] Among his many accomplishments, Morris created SIU's law, medical, and dental schools.

SIU's total undergraduate enrollment is around 20,000. Typical of public research universities, SIU has over 170 academic degree programs--across all levels; associates, bachelors, masters, and doctoral. It also offers professional programs in business, law and medicine. Since 1989, SIU has offered an M.D./J.D. dual degree program, leading to the concurrent award of both degrees after six years. [1]
