In 1886, National Louis University began as a radical idea for its time: a college to train women as kindergarten teachers. Our visionary founder, Elizabeth Harrison, believed that the future prosperity of a community began with the education of its youngest children.
National Louis University offers more than 70 career-focused endorsement, certificate, undergraduate, graduate and doctoral programs in Chicago and Florida in fields like education, business, psychology, hospitality management and culinary arts.
