Welcome to Iowa Wesleyan University, a transformational learning community with a passion for students!  Our first priority is to help you realize your aspirations and to educate, empower and inspire you to lead a meaningful life and career. As you peruse the website, I hope that you will be inspired by the amazing work that occurs at Wesleyan.

Wesleyan is a mission-driven institution. Our mission is born out of high aspirations: a deep desire to create something more for the institution and more for our students. We believe that learning is a process to be loved, and the ultimate purpose of this learning is to facilitate the release of your highest potential for the sake of the common good. Attending Wesleyan means that you will be radically affected in positive ways. You will be challenged and stretched. You will be encouraged and supported.

At Wesleyan, we appreciate that the endeavors students pursue often require bold risk-taking.  We celebrate that these endeavors are fueled by the passions, desires and aspirations of our students.  Therefore, we believe in individualized attention, we hold a deep respect for your unique circumstances, and we appreciate the particular gifts, strengths and insights you bring.  This is our way of preparing you and all of our students to “Go out and set the world on fire” (St. Ignatius Loyola) with your particular strengths, gifts and desires.

Please give our Admissions Office a call, or better yet, stop in for a visit.  We are here to help and serve you in your search for the college and program that is the best fit for you.
