Friends University Outreach

A Christian-based education for adult students in Kansas..

BACKGROUND
Friends University is a Kansas college that opened in September of 1898 as a Quaker institution. Friends is located in Wichita, Kansas and operated as a Quaker institution of learning until the 1930s. Since it’s inception in 1898, Friends has expanded its services. There are now permanent off-site locations in Lenexa, Kansas and Topeka, Kansas.

In their effort to continue expansion, Friends now has the Friends Outreach program. This outreach program has classes available in eight locations throughout the state of Kansas. With Friends Outreach, you can take both adult program focused classes and graduate level courses without having to commute to the main campus in Wichita. While getting your education with Friends Outreach, you will receive a liberal arts education within the Christian faith.

If you are living in the state of Kansas and want a quality education on a traditional campus, Friends Outreach is offering just that. Although the main campus of Friends has all of the degree offerings you might expect from a traditional university, the Friends Outreach program offerings are limited to the adult and graduate programs.
