The faculty at Indiana Wesleyan University represent a wide variety of backgrounds, though they all have in common their faith in Christ and belief in the Nicene Creed and orthodoxy. Their terminal degrees come from a wide range of institutions, from several British degrees to those from both American coasts and many from the Midwest.
Students consistently rank our faculty above the national average in teaching and mentoring, and many of our faculty members have a consistent national presence in scholarship venues. They have published twice as many books in the past seven years as in the institution’s previous 80 years.
A growing number of faculty are assisting their students with undergraduate research, and others with professional preparation. Hundreds of recent graduates in nursing, education, business, Christian ministries and other fields enter their careers with the benefit of faculty mentoring and experience in their field.
Our faculty also travel broadly. Many speak annually in major education venues in the U.S. and in other countries, and several take students on educational trips — including our affiliate locations through the CCCU and our own overseas programs.
The IWU faculty have helped to establish the University as the hub of Purpose-Guided Education, with a concerted effort to produce world-changing students who pursue their life goals. Whether students study in the liberal arts or in a professional field, our faculty members engage them in the content of their study area and the pursuit of their future interests.
