About Lindenwood

Lindenwood University - Tradition Like No Other

Founded in 1827, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Our historic 500-acre campus is situated in the heart of St. Charles, Mo., a growing community of more than 65,000 just west of St. Louis.

We offer 131 degree programs to approximately 15,600 students a year through values-centered programs that lead to development of the whole person. Our faculty, staff, and administration are committed to an integrative curriculum that focuses on the talents, interests, and future of our students. Lindenwood is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

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 heritage that dates back nearly 200 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.
