Founded in 1827, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year liberal arts institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Nestled amid the beautiful linden trees, our historic 500-acre campus is situated in the heart of St. Charles, Mo., a growing community of 62,000 just west of St. Louis.
We offer more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to approximately 17,000 students through values-centered programs that lead to development of the whole person. Our faculty, staff and administration are committed to an integrative liberal arts curriculum that focuses on the talents, interests and future of our students. Lindenwood is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
Lindenwood University is known nationally and internationally for innovation, entrepreneurship and extraordinary dedication to students. We believe that education is the way to personal freedom and responsibility, which are the keystones of any democracy. We have a liberal arts heritage that goes back more than 185 years. In that time, we have learned how to educate in a way that helps each student become an enlightened, principled citizen of a global community.
Lindenwood is an independent institution firmly rooted in Judeo-Christian values. Those values include belief in an ordered, purposeful universe, the dignity of work, the worth and integrity of the individual, the obligations and privileges of citizenship and the primacy of truth.
