Founded in 1865, on the banks of the Marais des Cygnes River about 40 miles southwest of Kansas City, Ottawa University began as a collaboration between the Ottawa Tribe and the Baptist missionaries serving in that area to improve the lives of local residents through higher education. From its beginnings as a single building, it has grown, changed and spread to include seven campuses, as well as an online school.
