About Lindenwood

Founded in 1832, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Our historic campus is situated in the heart of Saint Charles, Mo., a growing community of more than 65,000 just west of St. Louis.

We offer more than 100 degree programs through values-centered education 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’s HLC accreditation is exclusive to Lindenwood University and does not extend to any other Lindenwood Education System institution(s) of higher education, all of which maintain separate accreditation.

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.
