From Indiana Wesleyan University

IWU students live and learn within a Christ-centered culture that is committed to disciple making and influencing one another to become more like Jesus in every area of life. IWU is intentional about helping students discover their God-given individuality and life calling, and to grow in kindness, humility, belonging, integrity, and courage—our community values.

About an hour’s drive from the two largest cities in Indiana, IWU offers more than 80 undergraduate and 30+ graduate degrees. The University’s academic programs are nationally known for their curricular innovation, use of hands-on learning experiences and student success rates. For example, our nursing majors have consistently exceeded the NCLEX national pass rate for the past 13 years.

We welcome you to tour IWU in person to experience the genuine community of our campus with students and faculty where we develop students in character, scholarship and leadership.

We can’t wait to have you visit campus to discover more!
