At Kansas Wesleyan, students embrace the Power of AND in many ways, including engaging in their campus community AND the Salina community. Located in a robust city of nearly 50,000, KWU has partnerships with local, regional and global businesses, at the regional hospital and within the thriving arts community. Salina businesses employ KWU students in part-time jobs, internships and post-graduate positions in their career field. Students hone their skills alongside professionals in the Salina Symphony and at the Salina Community Theatre. A regional airport provides non-stop daily flights to Denver and Chicago.
Our students also learn AND serve in Salina AND the world, from internships in Washington, D.C. and summer Research Experiences at top institutions across the country, to Wesleyan Journey courses that allow every qualified student the chance to take a course in such destinations as Costa Rica, Germany and Florida at little or no additional cost.
We know the integration of studies and activity participation produces exceptional graduates. This is affirmed by national surveys; employers want to hire former student leaders because of their ability to work collaboratively, balance multiple priorities, communicate effectively and exhibit goal orientation. Our own six-month-graduation surveys indicate that our newest alumni are becoming employed or entering graduate school at higher-than-national levels.
