alumni celebrating graduation

Oklahoma Wesleyan University

Then & Now

For more than 115 years, Oklahoma Wesleyan University has been focused on helping students discover and deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ in order to be sent out to influence culture with grace and truth.

We believe that NOW more than ever, the world needs what OKWU graduates have to offer. Our desire is to continue to educate, equip, and empower leaders to transform the world through Christ.

Our goal is big – $68 million dollars by 2030 so that we can secure the next 100 years of Oklahoma Wesleyan. The NOW Campaign is about two things – people and programs. We believe in this generation and want to invest in them with scholarships, endowments, improved facilities, and more.

With your help, thousands will be sent out with a Biblically-centered education and the transforming power of the Gospel.
