Dr. Keri Bostwick wears a lot of hats at Oklahoma Wesleyan University, working both as Dean of Assessment and Accreditation and as Dean of the School of Education and Exercise Science, all the while teaching master’s-level classes. And, after a lot of thought and hard work – and as a result of her reliance on God – Bostwick recently earned her doctorate.
As befitting a university built upon the foundation of biblical truth, justice is vital to the mission of OKWU. Campus organizations like the Orange Movement seek justice and mercy for the least and lost among society, but it doesn’t stop there. This passion extends all the way across the university to include a robust, experiential, and ever-expanding Criminal Justice major.
“My path to get here was just following desire: my desire to learn, and my desire to teach, and my desire to model Christ.”
“I had to come to the end of my rope so many different times, but there was that guidance that I believe came from Him through other people, and sometimes I think there was empowerment that I felt from the Lord to get up and to keep going.”
Over 130 OKWU students have accepted the challenge to run for justice, and they’re excited to make both a change in their own lives and a difference in others.
