Representatives from Global Marketing and Communications (GMC) recently visited the Kansas City campus location to discuss program opportunities and strategies during Webster’s Centennial year.

“Kansas City has a really special place in Webster’s history,” said Barbara O’Malley, chief communications officer and working chair for the Centennial. “As our first metro location founded in 1972, Kansas City has been served by Webster for more than 40 years — almost half of the University’s history.”

In 1972, Webster modeled its Kansas City curriculum after the successful Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) program launched in St. Louis. Today, Kansas City is a vibrant location and home to about 365 current students.

They study in undergraduate degree completion or in master’s degree programs with the MBA, Counseling and Health Administration the most popular programs based on number of students enrolled.

Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) is one of Kansas City’s fastest-growing programs thanks to the $1.9 million federal grant – the largest federal grant received in Webster’s history.

“Webster students have so much opportunity here in Kansas City,” said Cass Butler, regional director. “Webster students know that they will receive high-quality academic programs and personal attention. Webster’s global perspective is invaluable when it comes to networking and opportunities to connect, study and work around the world. That’s what really sets Webster apart.”
