A Public University Preparing Students for Success

People often mistake us for a private university, perhaps because of our academic quality, small class sizes, and beautifully maintained campus.  However, Washburn University is a publicly funded, independently governed university offering more than 200 academic programs leading to licensure, certification; and associate’s, bachelor’s, master’s, doctor of Nursing Practice, and juris doctorate degrees. 

We offer undergraduates broad-based liberal arts and specialized professional instruction.  Our 160 acre, residential campus in the heart of Topeka, Kansas gives students access to a multitude of cultural and extracurricular activities that enrich their educations.   

We invite you to explore how a Washburn education can prepare you for success.  To get started, choose which best describes you:
