Wheeling University is about leadership, service, and an education that will last a lifetime.
Life | The Catholic traditions of educational excellence and service to others guide all of the programs at Wheeling University. By integrating learning, research, and economic development with classical knowledge and Christian revelation, the University seeks to foster competence, creativity, and innovation throughout and beyond the campus community. Graduates of the University enter the world of work with socially responsible goals, a lifelong appetite for learning, and the desire to make our universe a better place.
Leadership | To model the Catholic concern for regional and global neighbors, the University welcomes people of all creeds, races, and nationalities to share in the intelligent pursuit of excellence. The University promotes close student-faculty contacts and encourages students to develop their full potential for leadership. Through a grounding in the liberal arts and, above all, an example of Jesus Christ, the University endeavors to produce intelligent, moral leaders who will champion the Catholic values of faith, peace, and justice. Wheeling University envisions a dynamic leadership role for the University in the lives of its students and in the world at large.
Service With and Among Others | In its faculty and students, its research, and outreach, the University is national and international. Yet as the only Catholic institution of higher learning in West Virginia, Wheeling University also values its distinctive mission to the immediate area, educating local men and women and returning them to enrich their own communities. Wheeling University firmly believes its graduates will enter the professional world prepared to use their God-given talents not solely for personal fulfillment but as men and women in service to others.
