Urbana University, founded in 1850, is a fully accredited four-year liberal arts institution begun by and affiliated with the Swedenborgian Church. Located in the Midwestern heartland, Urbana is a small college affording each student individual attention and a flexibility of curriculum. Personal growth and the atmosphere of academic inquiry are united in a variety of relevant and creative programs encouraging the student’s exploration of the self. In 2014, Urbana University’s assets were acquired by Franklin University. This alliance enabled Urbana to continue to serve students, enjoy immediate improvements to the overall infrastructure of the campus, and provide a renewed energy that our students proudly embrace today.
