Nebraska Wesleyan was founded by Nebraska Methodists and actively maintains its relation to The United Methodist Church. The University reflects the Judeo-Christian tradition in its efforts to integrate questions about meaning and value with the pursuit of learning and understanding.
The University is committed to the excellence of academic endeavor and to learning as a lifelong process. The curricula and programs are designed to assist students in gaining and expanding knowledge and skills, in developing their competence in rational thought and communication, in broadening their perspectives on humanity and culture, and in enhancing their spiritual, physical, emotional, and aesthetic resources.
Nebraska Wesleyan intends that its students develop a sense of individual worth and become useful and serving members of the human community.
