Cleveland University-Kansas City (CUKC) began as a chiropractic college in 1922, its roots planted by pioneers in the profession. The institution is proud to be recognized as one of the oldest nonprofit chiropractic colleges in the nation. Dr. Carl S. Cleveland III, president, a fourth-generation chiropractor, and the grandson of the founders, leads the University.
CUKC has expanded their degrees to meet a wider range of healthcare careers while ensuring that chiropractic remains a cornerstone program. In 2015, CUKC completed the final phase of its transition to University status. Building on the success of its existing healthcare degree programs, CUKC continues to evolve by adding new health sciences programs to meet changing needs.
