Welcome to Drury University

A personal greeting from President David Manuel

Thank you for visiting Drury University’s website. I am delighted you have chosen to explore the university through this portal and am confident that you will learn much about Drury, our academic offerings, our outstanding faculty, the breadth of majors available, and the vibrant campus life.

This year Drury celebrates the 140th anniversary of its founding. Tied to the historical significance of Missouri and located as an integral member of Springfield’s Historic Midtown District, Drury was modeled after the notable liberal arts universities of the East Coast. Drury is committed to the liberal arts tradition and to personalized education that integrates theoretical and practical knowledge in the context of the 21st century. Thus, you will have opportunities to choose majors such as architecture, business, education, communications, behavioral sciences, and the traditional arts and humanities.
