Founded in 1827, Lindenwood is a dynamic four-year liberal arts institution dedicated to excellence in higher education. Nestled amid the beautiful linden trees, our historic 500-acre campus is situated in the heart of St. Charles, Mo., a growing community of 62,000 just west of St. Louis.
We offer more than 120 undergraduate and graduate degree programs to approximately 17,000 students through values-centered programs that lead to development of the whole person. Our faculty, staff and administration are committed to an integrative liberal arts curriculum that focuses on the talents, interests and future of our students. Lindenwood is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
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 liberal arts heritage that goes back more than 185 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.

DIVERSITY, EQUALITY, and INCLUSION STATEMENT
Lindenwood University is proud of its diverse population, which includes faculty and staff from all corners of the world and students from all continents and nearly 100 countries. We believe that our diversity and commitment to valuing diversity, both in and out of the classroom, place us on the cutting edge of scholastic and pedagogical innovations, preparing our students to be educated, responsible citizens of a global community.
Intentionally, we design our policies in such a manner that all stakeholders (whether students, employees, or visitors) will be treated with respect, dignity, fairness, equality, and inclusiveness in the pursuit and achievement of the objectives of their relationship with the University.
Additionally, we strive to ensure the opportunities afforded by the University for learning, personal advancement, and employment are offered to all without discrimination; and that we always provide a safe, supportive, and welcoming environment for all students, employees, and visitors. Upholding a culture of diversity, equality, and inclusion means that we fully understand and accept the fact that people of different cultures, races, colors, genders, ages, qualifications, skills, experiences, religions, orientations, affiliations, sexual orientations, socio-economic backgrounds, abilities, disabilities, or countries of origin are simply fellow human beings who are different and have the right to be different without being mistreated or discriminated against on the basis of their differences. Therefore, all Lindenwood policies, facilities, resources, activities, and privileges, irrespective of individual differences, are made available and accessible to everyone in our community.
Commitment and Implementation
At Lindenwood University, we will strive to:
- Offer collaborative and integrated academic and sporting programs that provide mutually beneficial experiences (locally and internationally) to our diverse body of students.
- Pursue and promote mutual understanding, respect, and cooperation among our teaching and non-teaching staff, contractors, suppliers, and visitors to our community who represent the aforementioned differences.
- Respect the knowledge, skills, and experiences that every person in our community brings to the University.
- Design and operate flexible and easily accessible services, facilities, and activities whose procedures appropriately recognize the needs of both the able and disabled.
