A Letter of Welcome

Welcome to Unity Insitute and Seminary! Take some time to browse through these pages to learn more about the exceptional programs at the Institute. Schedule a personal visit to discover the beauty and peacefulness that is Unity Village. We look forward to helping you discover your potential as one of tomorrow's innovative spiritual leaders.

We are proud of Unity Institute as a premier education institution that encourages students to lead from spiritual principle and inspire transformation in the world. As part of this mission, the Institute offers certificates for general spiritual education and graduate-level degrees in ministry and religious studies. Unity Institute also serves as the primary educational venue for those wishing to become Unity ministers.  
With a positive, practical, progressive approach to Christianity based on the teachings of Jesus and the power of prayer, our programs honor the universal truths in all religions and respect each individual's right to choose a spiritual path. Offering the flexibility of part- or full-time study, with a combination of online and on-campus classes, a program at Unity Institute is more than a certificate or degree in religion … it is preparation to become a transformative spiritual leader in ministry, business, education, or any other arena.  

Housed in a building on the National Register of Historic Places and located in the beautiful 1,200-acre township of Unity Village, Unity Institute is a beautiful park-like setting. The Mediterranean-style campus includes scenic countryside with two lakes, an All-America Rose Selections© accredited garden, fountains, a bookstore/coffee shop, and the Unity Village Chapel. In addition, our extensive metaphysical library and archives serve as the only primary source collection of historical materials relating to the Unity movement and offer more than 40,000 catalogued items, including a collection of rare early-New Thought materials. Located just 15 miles from downtown Kansas City, the area is also alive with many venues for arts, entertainment, and dining.
