Texas Wesleyan University

Texas Wesleyan University, founded in 1890 in Fort Worth, is a United Methodist institution with a tradition in the liberal arts and sciences and a focus on professional and career preparation. Our mission at Texas Wesleyan University is to develop students to their full potential as individuals and as members of the world community. The University is committed to the principles that each student deserves personal attention and that all members of the academic community must have freedom to pursue independent thought and to exercise intellectual curiosity. The University endeavors to create a learning environment where each student is provided an opportunity to pursue individual excellence, to think clearly and creatively and to communicate effectively. The University also strives to develop a sense of civic responsibility and spiritual sensitivity, with a commitment to moral discrimination and action. Texas Wesleyan University strives to develop informed, responsible and articulate citizens.
Every success begins with an opportunity. Texas Wesleyan University has carried on a tradition of student success for more than a century, thanks in part to the opportunities provided through the financial support from The Wesleyan Fund. The Wesleyan Fund supports scholarships and strengthens academic programming to help Texas Wesleyan students thrive, allowing them to reach their full potential without being held back by finances or lack of resources. Your gift not only provides opportunities to students and gives faculty the tools they need to teach effectively, it also influences the University in other significant ways. It increases the University's chances of earning important grants and ranking in such publications as U.S. News and World Report. Alumni giving rates are used to calculate alumni satisfaction. Foundations look at this number when deciding which institutions are awarded grants, and the media looks at it to build their rankings. These rankings are important to University growth, as they attract new and talented students.
