A history of looking forward

We welcomed our first students in 1916, which makes KCU one of the nation's founding colleges of osteopathic medicine. 

We've been on the forefront of health care ever since. We’re constantly creating new programs such as the Clinical Psychology Doctoral program, an MS in biomedical science, specialized dual degrees and a College of Dental Medicine (opens in Joplin in 2023). And we're continually renewing our commitment to research and our communities, most notably with our recent campus opening in Joplin and the first commencement of the KCU-Joplin Class of 2021.
