From Drury University

Established in 1873, Drury University sits on 90 acres in the heart of Springfield, Missouri. It is an oasis within the city where students get to really know their professors and classmates, creating a strong sense of culture and community that transcends the classroom.

From day one, Drury students are engaged in real research and scholarship with faculty mentors. This is a rare advantage; one that speaks to Drury’s unique approach to equipping students for leadership in the 21st century. Through its distinctive Your Drury Fusion program, Drury provides students with an opportunity to blend career, calling, life, community, self and service to gain a broader perspective on the world.

Your Drury Fusion provides all students multiple credentials, holistic advising which combines academic and career planning, and a minimum of three experiential projects. The Drury Difference leads to 97% of graduates employed or in professional or graduate school within six months of graduation.
