About 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, the university has enrollment of 28,500. From that single building, it has grown to five campuses — the Lawrence campus, the Edwards Campus in Overland Park, and medical branches in Kansas City, Wichita, and Salina. The once barren landscape has grown into a wooded campus considered one of the most beautiful in the nation.

KU offers more than 400 degrees, 5,000 courses and certificate programs through its 2,800 faculty members of which many of them are at the top of their fields. In university’s dynamic, cross-disciplinary research and learning environment, students exchange ideas, discover new ways of processing the world, and address society’s grand challenges.

Life on campus is more than academics. At KU, students will contribute to the tradition of artists, leaders, and innovators who inspire them — and they will reflect the inclusivity and ambition at the heart of their legacy. And sometimes, they will just have fun. Each year, KU students create hundreds of clubs and organize hundreds of events.

As one of only 34 U.S. public institutions in the Association of American Universities, KU has a distinguished record of research innovation. Through independent, multidisciplinary research centers, students and faculty collaborate on solutions that transform and improve the world.

Founded by abolitionists in 1854, Lawrence, Kansas, has carried that tradition of freedom and individuality through the generations. Today, Lawrence remains a crossroads of culture, celebrating the artists and innovators that populate its history and create an unmistakable identity.
