    School Overview

    The University of Kansas City was chartered in 1929, and one year later, Kansas City businessman and philanthropist William Volker donated 41 acres to the university. In 1931, Volker acquired and donated the Dickey mansion, which would house the first library, classrooms, cafeteria and administrative offices.
