Purple Heart University

Washburn University is proud to be a Purple Heart University! Washburn University’s designation as the first Purple Heart University in Kansas was awarded by the Military Order of the Purple Heart, an organization chartered by Congress in 1958 to recognize men and women who received the Purple Heart Medal for wounds suffered in combat. This award was given in recognition of Washburn's continued service to veterans and members of the military.
