GUIDING PRINCIPLES

Wesleyan’s community is:

  • Academically challenging: We believe students succeed when they are challenged academically. Wesleyan’s dedicated faculty and staff offer individualized support to motivate students to achieve their potential.
     
  • Purposeful: We believe students thrive when they have a purpose and a clear vision of their goals. Wesleyan helps students define these goals and strategically plan for the future. 
     
  • Inclusive: We believe all student voices are important. Wesleyan is diverse and inclusive, gaining strength from and celebrating the many ways we can learn from each other.  
     
  • Connected: We believe we gain strength from our connections to each other. Wesleyan encourages students to find their own places within a community and to contribute in meaningful ways.
