More people are choosing Nebraska Wesleyan University than ever before. Last year, we welcomed our largest incoming class ever. This year, we broke that record.

We’re also coming off the most successful fundraising campaign in our 132-year history. “Bold Designs: The campaign for Nebraska Wesleyan University” raised $67.5 million. Those funds are already changing NWU in ways your students can see and feel.

  • Our new Acklie Hall of Science gives students in biology, chemistry and psychology beautiful labs to work in.
  • A hyper-adaptable LED system now lights up operas and concerts in NWU’s performing arts auditorium.
  • We’ve invested $22 million and created 92 new endowed and annual scholarships for your students.
  • We’re pouring $2.5 million more in support for the kinds of professors who keep their doors open and eagerly collaborate with their students.

These are the investments that help us give your students a truly transformational education.

Encourage your students to schedule a visit and check out our new science facility. They’ll receive our $1,000 Campus Visit Grant for their time.
