John Brown University Partnership

We are proud to partner with John Brown University as they are ranked as No. 1 “Best Value” in the U.S. News and World Report 2013 Best Colleges Edition among its peers in the South. Overall, JBU was ranked as the No. 2 Best College among the 107 regional colleges in the South. 

 
 

Even though John Brown University is located in Siloam Springs, Arkansas, our students will attend courses through John Brown in Branson, which will be taught by Link Year staff that operates as ad-junct professors. JBU classes will be taught in addition to the Link Year curriculum throughout the year.

Acceptance into the Kanakuk Link Year does not guarantee acceptance into John Brown University. Students who desire to enroll in college courses while at the Kanakuk Link Year need to apply separately through John Brown University. Link Year staff is available to help answer any questions concerning our partnership with JBU.

If you have any questions about JBU, please reach out to Lauren Huffman of JBU who will be able to assist you.You may contact her at Lhuffman@jbu.edu or 479-524-7423
