Institutional Overview-Nebraska Wesleyan University

Institutional History

Chartered by Methodists in 1887, Nebraska Wesleyan has an ongoing, beneficial relationship today with the United Methodist Church. The university welcomed its first class of 96 women and men in 1888, taught by a faculty of eight in a single building. In its early years, the university included a college of liberal arts, a music conservatory, schools of art, business, and education, and elementary and secondary schools. During the 1930s and 1940s, NWU eliminated the various schools, closed its pre-collegiate programs, and reorganized as an undergraduate liberal arts college. It built its first residence hall in 1948; until then, students had boarded in homes in the surrounding University Place neighborhood.

Today the residential campus includes a dozen housing facilities with a mix of traditional residence halls and modern suites and townhouses. All traditional undergraduates who live outside a 30-mile radius of Lincoln are expected to live on campus through their junior year.
