ABOUT SIMMONS

THE NATION’S 101ST HISTORICALLY BLACK COLLEGE UNIVERSITY 

 

LOUISVILLE’S ONLY HBCU

The Simmons College experience is about more than just earning a degree: It’s about growing personally and spiritually. It’s about expanding our students’ understanding of global cultures. It’s about putting them in position to make a positive difference in the world. 


Simmons College offers Black students an environment where they can explore the world from a familiar place with the support of a welcoming, learning family. Developing and nurturing the potential of tomorrow’s Black leaders – tomorrow’s difference makers – is our purpose, and it represents the dreams of the formerly enslaved persons who built our college more than 140 years ago. 

A REWARDING UNDERGRADUATE EXPERIENCE

Students benefit from one-on-one instruction and personalized attention. In fact, Simmons College of Kentucky’s 9 to 1 student-faculty ratio ranks in the top five of all HBCUs.

Our campus is located in the heart of Louisville’s bustling downtown, convenient to entertainment, restaurants and housing. Plus, it’s only a few hours’ drive from Chicago, St. Louis, Indianapolis, Cincinnati, Nashville, Atlanta and other exciting destinations.
