Washburn University

Washburn University (WU) is a co-educational, public institution of higher learning in Topeka, Kansas.

Washburn has over 1,000 faculty members who teach more than 7,300 undergraduate students and graduate students. There are more than 200 academic programs which lead to certification, associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degrees. Washburn University is consistently ranked among Midwestern universities as an independent public institution.

Washburn University was established in February 1865 as Lincoln College. The school was renamed Washburn College in 1868. That was after Ichabod Washburn pledged $25,000 to the school. The Washburn School of Law, which was formed in 1903, was one of the first in the country to have a legal clinic where students were able to actively practice the legal profession. The medical department of Washburn College closed in 1913.

The university's primary funding was moved from city property tax to county sales tax sources in 1999. It was formerly a municipal university. The school retained the status as a municipal subdivision of the state. Only a few days after classes were dismissed for the summer, on June 8, 1966, much of the campus was demolished by a tornado, and was completely denuded of trees. Stoffer Hall was repaired and trailers were in place by the fall of 1966. Reconstructing the campus took years.

As a leader in providing a superior student-centered, teaching-focused learning experience and preparing graduates for success in their chosen profession Washburn University is dedicated to being a premier Midwest regional institution. Washburn University enriches the lives of students by providing opportunities for them to develop and to realize their academic and professional potential.

Washburn University offers programs through the College of Arts and Sciences and the Schools of Law, Business, Nursing and Applied Studies.

The university is home to several honor and recognition societies. A long-standing interactive relationship between the campus and Kansas's capital city community enriches the broadly-based liberal arts and professional programs. The students are the top priority while all faculty members are expected to stay current in their fields and encouraged to pursue research interests. All classes average 15 students per faculty member, this enables students to get one-on–one attention with the faculty.
