Kansas City Education Center

Friends University has served students in the Kansas City metro area since 1989. In July 2015, the Kansas City Education Center relocated to Overland Park near Metcalf Avenue and Shawnee Mission Parkway. This location is more accessible and convenient for our marriage and family therapy students who are navigating on-campus classes and off-campus internships with community organizations. Being located in the greater Kansas City metropolitan area also offers a wealth of opportunities and attractions. From grand-scale shopping to distinctive dining to family fun adventures, the Kansas City area is a great place to work and study.
