Texas Wesleyan University, guided by its deep Methodist heritage, provides transformational learning experiences and research opportunities to a diverse group of students to develop their full potential as individuals and as members of the world community.
The university’s faculty and staff engage in scholarship and research that inform teaching and advance knowledge and understanding, as well as innovative teaching skills and delivery modalities to afford each student individual attention to develop critical thinking, analytical reasoning and creative problem-solving skills through a small community approach that allows tailored student experiences in and outside the classroom.
With a belief that a liberal arts and sciences education develops the mental agility and social awareness to elevate socioeconomic mobility, the university’s faculty and staff are dedicated to facilitating success among students from all backgrounds in all levels of undergraduate, graduate, and professional programs in persisting to college degrees that enhance their own lives, the lives of their families, and the strength of their communities.
Texas Wesleyan aspires to be a values- and student-centered university where motivated students prepare for graduate school and leadership in professional careers.
This vision is premised upon the understanding that professional employers seek individuals who have attained the essential skills of critical thinking, analytical reasoning and creative problem solving.
Texas Wesleyan believes that the best way for undergraduate students to learn these skills is in a liberal arts setting through intentionally small classes led by gifted faculty who are committed to student success.
This vision also recognizes that most students will need graduate professional degrees to further their careers and that these same skills are required for admission to and successful completion of graduate professional programs.
Realizing that most students will enter the workforce before returning to graduate school, Texas Wesleyan University will maintain graduate professional programs of high quality in formats that are accessible to working adults. These programs will focus on deepening and broadening critical thinking, analytical reasoning and creative problem solving skills in the context of professional content.
