Faith on Campus

The program of religious life at Wesleyan focuses on maintaining a clear and distinctive witness for the Christian faith. We seek to open a dialogue of differences within the Christian community involving many different denominations. Our Wesleyan Disciples organization helps to fulfill this goal. Learn more about Wesleyan Disciples!  In addition we often bring to campus representatives of other major world religions to speak on Judaism, Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam.  These sessions usually occur on Inter-Faith Tuesdays, or the second Tuesday of each month.  These celebrations are sponsored by the Council on Religious Concerns.

A concerted effort is made to provide the services of the campus chaplain to the entire Wesleyan family. Therefore, individual and group counseling is available to students, staff, and faculty.  Wesleyan is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, which naturally results in a strong Methodist presence on campus. However, the college is not sectarian in its recruitment of students, staff, or faculty.
