At Wheeling Jesuit University, our philosophy is rooted in the Jesuit educational tradition that spans more than 450 years. Academic excellence, a commitment to serve others and the desire to educate the whole person - these are the values that make a Jesuit education unique. We prepare students for thinking in a moral context about relevant, global topics. The experiences our students gain prepare them for careers in boardrooms, classrooms, medical centers, laboratories and non-profit organizations among other exciting opportunities. No matter their career path, our graduates are making a difference in the world.
Educating for leadership is an integral part of your academic experience. Whether you are tutoring another student, campaigning for student government, implementing a service project, or rallying your teammates before a game, leadership is a trait that will enable you to serve others throughout your life.
A key component of the Jesuit outlook is taking part in service. That means getting out, getting your hands dirty and helping others who need it. That means challenging injustice, seeking reform and changing things. But it also means having fun learning about yourself and finding friends who share your passions.
