Peru State College was founded in 1867 as Nebraska’s first college and as only the third teacher education institution established west of the Missouri River. The school was originally named Nebraska State College, but in 1963 it was renamed to Peru State College. Peru State College’s mission is "to provide life-long learning by fostering independent inquiry and promoting the value of knowledge and discovery."
Peru State College is a four-year, public university that awards bachelor’s degrees and master’s degrees, many of which can be earned completely online.
