Welcome!

Thank you for taking the time to find out more about the dynamic community at Kansas Wesleyan. We are fully committed to all aspects of our mission —academic excellence, spiritual development, personal well-being and social responsibility — and we demonstrate this in ways both big and small.

It can be seen in the personal attention that our professors offer students. These relationships are often cited by alumni as key to helping them achieve academic success, grow personally and pursue professional goals. Our commitment is evident in the nearly half-million dollars raised for upgrades to science equipment and labs. It thrives in the community partnerships and alumni relationships that create internship and out-of-the-classroom opportunities for students.

We recognize that having a plurality of experiences better prepares students to face tomorrow’s challenges. That is why we enthusiastically support our 24 NAIA athletic teams, eight music ensembles and multiple theatrical performances. The Wesleyan Journey provides no- and low-cost travel opportunities for juniors and seniors so that everyone has the chance to learn away from the campus. Monday Night Alive, small groups and Fellowship of Christian Athletes feed student’s spiritual growth. From intramurals to debate and forensics, there are so many ways that students can become involved, gain new skills and meet new friends.

If there is anything I may do to assist you in your exploration of Kansas Wesleyan, please be in touch. You may come to my monthly open office hours, join me and my family for dinner in Shriwise, catch me at a Coyote athletic competition or sit next to me at a fine arts event. Keep up to date on campus happenings on our news page and follow us on social media.

All the best,

Matt Thompson
