A Mission that Matters

Education is a force that transforms lives, communities, and the world for the better. Phillips University and its alumni are evidence of that. The university was established in 1907 and, for over 90 years, attracted the best and brightest students who would go on to transform the world.

Now, for over 20 years, the Phillips University Legacy Foundation has continued that legacy – providing life-changing scholarships, meaningful leadership development programs & powerful community – all of which make higher education possible at schools much like PU.
