Dr. David Wright Indiana Wesleyan University is proud to call Marion, Indiana our home. We are excited to share the news of the significant economic impact that IWU has on the Grant County economy.

Much has changed for IWU and Marion in the last 30 years. We commissioned the Business Research Center at Indiana University to conduct an Economic Impact Study. The study found that IWU now makes a direct annual economic impact of $72 MILLION on the Marion economy. In addition, this economic impact helps to create 400 MORE JOBS in Marion beyond our own 1100 FULL-TIME EMPLOYEES.

Even more heartening for me, the study found that between our students and staff IWU people contribute well over 200,000 HOURS of service to local charitable organizations each year.

We want to share our story with you.
