Since 1863, Emporia State University has prepared teachers in nationally acclaimed teacher education programs. For the last 40 years, outstanding and highly accredited programs in Business, Library and Information Management, and Liberal Arts and Sciences have prepared our students to take their place in a competitive and increasingly global society.
Becoming engaged in an authentic research or creative project under the watchful eye of a dedicated faculty mentor is a learning experience with tremedous impact. Undergraduate research is an opportunity to experience your field of study beyond the classroom and textbooks. Perhaps more importantly, it allows you to develop and demonstrate the skills and dispositions most desired by graduate schools, professional programs and employers.
The Office of International Education provides leadership and support for Emporia State University's international dimension, including preparing globally-ready, responsible, and engaged citizens.
To this end, the OIE promotes comprehensive internationalization across the campus by coordinating internationally-focused academic activities and programs for students, faculty, and staff.
As the intellectual heart of ESU, the University Libraries and Archives is fully integrated and engaged in teaching and learning. Fostering an intellectually open environment to inspire discovery and creativity, we cultivate a community of learners and scholars able to adapt and lead.
All students are encouraged to carry health insurance. Many students are covered by a parent's policy or by an employer-sponsored plan.
