    Mission Statement

    Vision: Forever first for women's education -- striving for excellence, grounded in faith, and engaged in service to the world. Mission: Founded in 1836 as the first college in the world for women, Wesleyan College offers an education that leads to lifelong intellectual, personal, and professional growth. Our academic community attracts those with a passion for learning and making a difference. The Wesleyan experience has four cornerstones. Academics: Wesleyan is committed to academic excellence in the liberal arts, the fine arts, and professional fields of study and to close relationships among faculty and students. Women: Wesleyan takes seriously its role as a pioneer in women's education and seeks to provide scholarship, leadership, and service opportunities through which women will be challenged to accomplish ambitious goals. Faith: Wesleyan is proud of its long relationship with the United Methodist Church. We respect other traditions and remain committed to the Judeo-Christian ethic, believing that a firm grasp of enduring human values is basic to the Wesleyan way of learning, living, and service. Community: Wesleyan values each member of its community as an individual and in relationship to the whole. We work together in service to the larger community that surrounds us.

    Wesleyan students are not only highly intelligent, but also possess a genuine bond which is rarely found in any other college environment. Upon starting the first few weeks of school my freshman year, I felt as though I had known some of my classmates for years.
