Nebraska Wesleyan University holds a unique place in American college sports.
The seven contiguous states of Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas and Oklahoma are home to some 12 million people. Together, they cover a fifth of the lower 48. And between them, they have just one NCAA III institution: Nebraska Wesleyan University.
So when we say NWU offers an athletic experience unlike anything else in our region, we mean it.
The NCAA III philosophy uses athletics to add depth to students’ educational experience. It prizes academic achievement and integrity.
Nebraska Wesleyan gives your students the opportunity to compete on an NCAA stage as part of the renowned American Rivers Conference. Nonconference play and national tournaments put NWU student-athletes alongside outstanding competitors from schools like MIT, Brown and Johns Hopkins.
NCAA championships are unlike anything student-athletes experience in the NAIA. And Nebraska Wesleyan student-athletes have thrived on this stage. The men’s basketball team won the 2018 NCAA III championship. Our women’s 4x400 relay team has taken seven straight national titles. And NWU ranks seventh in the nation across divisions with 181 Academic All-Americans.
