The year 2020 marks the centennial celebration of Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU). Originally known as Marion College, IWU was started by the Wesleyan Methodist Church interested in training pastors. The school had five educational programs and 252 students. In 1990, IWU was an early developer of online education. Today, there are over 90,000 graduates, and the university continues to pursue educational distinction and keep Christ at the center of its mission.
The University looks quite different today than it did back in 1920. Over 12,800 students, 180 academic programs, a wide range of athletics, state-of-the-art facilities, and an expansive campus…but at its core, the University remains passionate about being Christ-Centered, innovative, and affordable. Additionally, the board of trustees hopes to see continued growth and diversity.
