Indiana Wesleyan University is a Christian comprehensive university of The Wesleyan Church. The University was founded in 1920 as Marion College and is committed to liberal arts and professional education.

Indiana Wesleyan is the largest member of the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, the largest private college in Indiana, based on enrollment, and is one of the largest employers in Grant County.

Nearly 3,000 students are enrolled in traditional programs on the University’s 350 acre residential campus in Marion. Most buildings on the Marion campus have been built in the past 25 years, so students live and learn in a visually striking environment with well-appointed residence halls and academic facilities, all on a campus that is only an hour away from both Fort Wayne and Indianapolis.

Indiana Wesleyan University offers more than 80 undergraduate degrees, and an expanding list of graduate degree programs to residential students representing more than 80 Christian denominations and 10 foreign countries.

IWU has received national attention for its innovative IWU-National & Global adult education program, which began in 1985. Over 8,000 adult learners attend classes online or at education centers in Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio.. IWU-National & Global offers over 100 degree programs at the associates, bachelors, graduate and doctoral levels.

Wesley Seminary, founded in 2009, is headquartered on the campus of IWU. Wesley Seminary offers a practical online option for working ministers to obtain a graduate or doctoral level degree while applying weekly knowledge to their local ministry contexts.
