University description (as per official university website)
Founded in 1966, MidAmerica Nazarene University opened its doors to students in 1968 with an enrollment of 263. Since that initial semester of operation, enrollment has increased dramatically and now totals approximately 1,900. The University offers undergraduate academic majors in 39 areas, a degree-completion program in Management and Human Relations, a baccalaureate degree affiliation with European Nazarene College in Germany, and graduate-level programs in education and business administration.
MidAmerica is located 19 miles southwest of downtown Kansas City, Missouri, on a 105-acre campus in Olathe, Kansas, the county seat of Johnson County. Because of its strategic location in the Greater Kansas City area, students and faculty have access to the cultural, recreational and employment advantages of this metroplex. The permanent control of the University is vested in a board of trustees elected from the various districts of the North Central Region of the Church of the Nazarene: Iowa, Joplin, Kansas, Kansas City, Minnesota, Missouri, Dakota, and Nebraska.
