Letter From the President

Welcome to Oklahoma Wesleyan University!

We are a university that believes in and practices the transforming grace of Jesus Christ. Without Him, we can do nothing. With Him, all things are possible!

The transformations of lives is core to all that Oklahoma Wesleyan University is and does. Being an orthodox Christian, liberal arts university, we believe God wants to change the whole person by His grace and truth in order for His disciples to change the whole world for the good of His Kingdom. This is a place that prioritizes the whole development of the whole person spiritually, academically, emotionally, and physically including the worldview a person looks upon others and the culture God has called us to witness to through and with His love. We honor the Primacy of Jesus Christ, the Priority of Scripture, the Pursuit of Truth, and the Practice of Wisdom for the whole person so the Kingdom of Jesus Christ can impact the whole world.

As you consider Oklahoma Wesleyan University as your choice to develop who it is that God has called you to be and what He has wired you to do in life, I am confident in our mission, our people, our grace-giving, our truth-telling, and our Christian worldview culture. We desire to be so full of Jesus Christ that the grace and truth of Jesus Christ oozes out of all we are and do through Oklahoma Wesleyan University.

As one who graduated from this outstanding university, I wholeheartedly recommend this place and these people to you looking forward to the impact the ministry of the Gospel continues to have on all of us in every area of our lives. I look forward to interacting with you in order to learn how God is at work in your story. Join the OKWU family as we seek to honor Jesus Christ in all we are and do.

In Christ,
President Jim Dunn
