Graceland University

Graceland University has challenged students for more than 100 years to embrace learning as a lifestyle. Students are encouraged to pursue a variety of intellectual choices through the universitys firmly-based liberal arts tradition. Its rich history of diversity, acceptance and intellectual pursuit found on the original campus in Lamoni, Iowa, have been taken to the second campus in Independence, Missouri, satellite sites and programs offered on- line. Graceland attracts students from across the United States and around the world. The graduates of this diverse non-sectarian student body are prepared to meet the challenges in this increasingly complex world.
