What We Value

These personal and community life expectations guide our activities and interactions on campus each day.






Why It Matters

We think it’s important that you know what you’re investing in — and how we intend to invest in you — during your time at IWU.

IWU students are TRANSFORMED

Students live and learn in a disciple-making culture that influences each other to become more like Jesus and to live lives characterized by kindness, humility, belonging, integrity and courage.

IWU students are PREPARED

Faculty who are leaders in their field and dedicated to effective teaching embed faith in the learning experience as they prepare students for excellent career or graduate school placement upon graduation.

IWU students are EQUIPPED

Students thrive in a community that encourages them to become all that God has created them to be by discovering, clarifying and developing their calling and learning how their unique gifts and strengths can be used to lead others and influence the world for Christ.
