NWU Launches $62 Million "Bold Designs" Campaign

Every day, NWU professors teach their students to be bold. To imagine possibilities. To build and create.

That boldness stands at the heart of Nebraska Wesleyan’s mission. One hundred thirty years ago, a group of visionaries saw potential in an empty field of sunflowers. They did more than imagine. They laid the foundation of a great university. Today, we work to live by the lessons of our founders and our faculty. To do more than imagine. To be bold in the things we build and create.

The Duane W. Acklie Hall of Science is the university's first academic building to be constructed on campus in decades. The facility will house the biology, chemistry and psychology programs and is scheduled to open in early 2019.
