President’s Office

Welcome to Nebraska Wesleyan University. I hope that in navigating our website you find plenty of useful information that helps reinforce the value you receive in a Nebraska Wesleyan education. To really get to know us, though, please come and visit the campus. I know you’ll receive a warm welcome from the university’s 2,000 students and the several hundred members of our faculty and staff.

For more than 130 years Nebraska Wesleyan has provided a challenging education, rooted in the liberal arts, that prepares students for productive careers and fulfilling lives. Founded by Nebraska Methodists in 1887, the University has always welcomed persons of all faiths and backgrounds. Today our traditional-age, adult, and graduate students comprise a diverse and global academic community.

Year after year Nebraska Wesleyan students and their professors win awards for all they accomplish in learning and teaching. I take great pride in the opportunity I’ve had since 2007 to serve this outstanding University as its 16th president.

Yours truly,

Frederik Ohles
