There is a unique energy at Indiana Wesleyan University – a combination of innovation, purpose and faith – and it takes just one visit to experience it. IWU students discover their God-given individuality and life calling, and develop in character, scholarship and leadership.
IWU is about an hour’s drive from the two largest cities in Indiana, offers 80 undergraduate and more than 30 graduate degrees.
Born out of a tradition of social activism for abolition and women’s suffrage, The Wesleyan Church is committed to growing IWU as a multicultural institution. The University is a Senior Sponsor of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference (NHCLC) Education Directive and a sponsor of Indiana Black Expo.
Students run the school’s coffee shop, McConn Coffee Co.; conduct, publish and present research at conferences at places like Cambridge and Harvard; and travel the globe for academic studies and mission work.
Our Wildcat athletic teams have won 148 conference championships, 18 all-sports trophies, 27 NCCAA national championships and eight individual and team NAIA Division II national championships. In the summer of 2013, over 200 Wildcat athletes traveled to Auckland, New Zealand on a massive, department-wide mission experience. IWU student athletes served in various capacities within Auckland area schools and churches, using sports as a venue to minister to others and share the Gospel of Christ.
IWU – known for community, collaboration, creativity, mentoring, faith and learning. Oh, and don’t forget, there’s great coffee too!
