For 100 years, Indiana Wesleyan University’s mission has been to change the world by developing students in character, scholarship, and leadership. IWU started as a brick-and-mortar college in Marion, Indiana, but today we are made up of three units: the residential campus in Marion, Indiana; Wesley Seminary; and IWU–National & Global, where we serve over 8,000 non-residential students.
In 1985, we recognized that adult students often felt locked out of higher education, so IWU took a bold step of faith and launched a new learning model that would meet their needs. Today, our flexible online and onsite programs have helped tens of thousands of students earn their degrees while balancing their careers, families, and lives. Our graduates are not only adept professionals—many of them are also spiritual leaders and upstanding citizens who are valuable contributors within their communities.
Our founders also believed in helping students carry their faith into their vocations, so they resolved to keep Christ at the center of the university and pursue second-to-none academic excellence. A century later, we have become a thriving university with a global impact, and we are looking forward to the next 100 years.
“Our promise we make to the people that come after us is that we will hold on to the things that define who we are as a Christ-centered institution,” President David Wright said. “We see the phenomenal things God does through this community and the faculty, the mentoring and discipleship.”
Here at IWU–National & Global, we’re passionate about helping students find programs that fit their lives and help them meet their goals. We offer more than 90 programs designed specifically to fit within a busy schedule – no need to pause your life to earn your degree. Our programs reach from associate-level education to doctoral programs and even certificates.
