Drury University

History

Drury was founded in 1873 to offer an environment of strong academic discourse and intellectual achievement. Its founders, Congregationalist home missionaries, felt the need for an academically strong liberal arts college in Southwest Missouri. Drury College became Drury University on January 1, 2000, reflecting its growing role in higher education.

Education

Drury University is an institution of higher education offering masters, baccalaureate and associate degrees. The university enrollment is approximately 4,000 students. Programs are characterized by a focus on preparing students for satisfying and successful lives and careers. The programs prepare students for professional careers through careful attention to a liberal arts education with professional preparation. Drury is distinctive in its attention to the comprehensive preparation of graduates competent to assume leading roles in their professions and in their communities. 

Research

Many academic departments offer special research or investigative projects beyond the regular catalog offering. Significant responsibility lies with the student to work independently to develop a proposal for study that must be approved by a faculty mentor and the appropriate department chair. The faculty member will provide counsel through the study and will evaluate the student’s performance.

Sophomores, juniors and seniors are eligible.

Career Planning & Development is an integral part of the Robert and Mary Cox Compass Center. It offers personal and professional discovery to enrich your college experiences and shape your future.
