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.
