UNIVERSITY

William Jewell College

William Jewell College was established in 1849 in Liberty, Mo., at the edge of the American wilderness. Today, the 200-acre campus sits at the edge of both urban and rural landscapes, with rolling hills and Midwestern countryside in one direction and the Kansas City skyline in another.

The Jewell Journey is rich with opportunities for students to live what they learn. Students can engage in our Center for Justice and Sustainability, collaborate in our new Pryor Learning Commons, design their own Journey Grant anywhere in the world, be a Division II student-athlete, research with a professor, join the 2014 national championship Debate Team or launch an entrepreneurial venture through our Idea Exchange.

We focus on student achievement, emphasizing critical thinking, research, experiential learning and leadership. Consistently ranked among America's best colleges in U.S. News & World Report, Forbes, The Princeton Review, Washington Monthly and Kiplinger's Personal Finance, Jewell is cited for small class sizes, low student debt, high graduation rates, commitment to service and overall value.
