The Kansas University

About The University of Kansas

In 1866, the University of Kansas welcomed the first class of 55 students to an unfinished building on a treeless ridge called Mount Oread.

Today, our enrollment approaches 30,000. From that single building, we have grown to five campuses — the Lawrence campus, the Edwards Campus in Overland Park, and medical center campuses in Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina. The once barren landscape in Lawrence grew into a wooded campus considered one of the most beautiful in the nation.

We embrace our role as the state’s flagship university and a premier research institution, serving the state, nation, and world. We celebrate the energy and compassion that infuse the Jayhawk spirit. And we remain true to our historic values: the elevating force of education, the transformative power of research, and the healing power of service.

This program is offered through the University of Kansas Lifelong & Professional Education unit in partnership with edX.
