Cottey College was established in 1884 by Virginia Alice Cottey, a Missouri teacher who dreamed of helping women receive higher education. The College is owned and supported by the P.E.O. Sisterhood, an international philanthropic organization focused on education for women. This support keeps Cottey strong and gives it the ability to change to meet the needs of today’s students.
