With roots as a high school academy more than a century ago, Graceland University has built upon its core values of “learning,” “wholeness” and “community” to deliver a liberal arts education that is “enhanced by career-oriented practical experiences.” Today, the university leads the way with its renowned nursing program as well as its reputation for education, business, and seminary degrees. Sponsored by the Community of Christ Church, it has two main campuses in Lamoni, Iowa and Independence, Missouri.
