The University charter was granted April 21, 1865, by the probate court of Franklin County, Kansas. The petitioners named in the charter were I.S. Kalloch, C.C. Hutchinson, John G. Pratt, J.T. Jones, James Wind, William Hurr, and Joseph King.
Today, Ottawa University remains true to its heritage, asserting itself as “Steadfastly Christian; Proudly American Baptist; and Positively Open and Inclusive.” The University maintains its close ties to the Ottawa Tribe and continues to honor its agreement to provide a free education to any Ottawa Tribe of Oklahoma member. Ottawa University currently serves more than 7,000 students through its residential campus in Ottawa, Kansas, and adult campuses in Overland Park, Kansas; Phoenix, Chandler and Surprise, Arizona; Brookfield and Oak Creek, Wisconsin; Jeffersonville, Indiana; as well as online.
