We invite your participation in KCU's Leading the Way Centennial Campaign to ensure the University continues its tradition of educating the finest osteopathic physicians for the next 100 years.
In 2013, the university unveiled the most ambitious campus master plan in our history. Accomplishments to date include the renovation of the Academic Center, Classroom Annex, Strickland Education Pavilion, and most recently, the Administration Building, including the addition of the Walker Family Welcome Center. However, our needs continue. Future renovations and additions to our campus will ensure that KCU has the best possible academic success.
The focal point of our capital needs during the Centennial Campaign is the construction of a new Center for Medical and Surgical Simulation. Because we have outgrown our current building, we no longer have sufficient space to create actual-size simulation rooms, incorporate the newest equipment and accommodate our growing enrollment.
This new center will place KCU at the forefront of simulated medical training, serving as a resource for the Midwest region and beyond.

Our strategic emphasis on enhancing translational research benefits our students’ education and contributes to medical- and scientific-related discoveries that will make a difference for patients.
KCU has laboratories to support research in ALS, Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s and cardiovascular disease. And, we have established unprecedented partnerships with area biomedical partners to advance our work and to position KCU as a magnet for students pursuing degrees in this field.
However, we need to increase our investment in internationally recognized faculty and state-of-the-art equipment to accelerate scientific discoveries to treat everything from ALS to Alzheimer’s, and to ultimately make a difference in the lives of all those living with such diseases.
