Ohio Wesleyan University (OWU) is an academic community that believes in continuously building a campus culture that values every form of diversity and welcomes all people. Furthermore, we believe in fostering an inclusive campus where all of its members can thrive. OWU’s goal is to provide every student with transformational experiences that will prepare them for the causes, careers, and graduate school opportunities they want to pursue. We do this through close relationships with faculty-mentors and through a unique program called The OWU Connection. OWU is featured in “Colleges That Change Lives” and recognized as a top 100 national liberal arts college by U.S. News & World Report.
