Academic excellence. Christ-centered education. Global worldview.

In 1920, Indiana Wesleyan University’s founders resolved to stand on these promises throughout the life of our institution. Now, a century later, these promises are part of our DNA.

God is not done with Indiana Wesleyan University. This year, we celebrate the past as we look in hope to the future and another 100 years of keeping the promise.


This fall, IWU will be inviting residents of the local Marion area to visit campus and celebrate our 100 years of partnership in Grant County together. Features of the event will include food, tours and a special thank you. Continue to check back for more information.

The Homecoming Celebration and Banquet is a night full of worship, entertainment, honors and inspiration. An alumni band leads worship each year and the University Chorale provides entertainment. Alumni award winners are honored highlighted by the annual presentation of the Alumni World Changer Award. President Wright then closes the evening with an inspirational account of how the Lord is working at IWU.

Keeping the Promise” is the theme of the Indiana Wesleyan University 100 year celebration and we are hosting events throughout the Midwest to celebrate. There will be 3 events in the fall of 2020 and 3 in the spring of 2021. The “Keeping the Promise” tour events will be held in the evening at selected locations. These events will focus on celebrating with food, fun, friends and more. Look at a few of the “artifacts” of the earlier days and network with friends both old and new. Hear a brief overview of some good things happening now along with hopes for the future of IWU. These events are by invitation only.
