Wesleyan is a school that is devoted to not only diversity, but inclusion of both students and staff that bolsters the word of God.

Diversity and Inclusion

Through diversity, we seek to grow and embrace the various cultures, ethnicities, talents and socio-economic differences. With these God given differences, we want to support everyone by empowering individuals where their worth and value are equally recognized, valued and utilized.

Faculty and staff are involved in professional development and small group discussions to further their understanding of the growing diversity of our school.
Students participate in bible studies, mentoring groups and chapels that support the Christian mission of the school and help them broaden their gaze on God’s call to love as it is written in Psalm 133:1, “How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity.”

Parents also have opportunities to engage in meaningful dialogue through a Bible study called Racial Reconciliation. This Bible study was created to allow groups to come together in love to seek reconciliation, understanding, and support in a community of believers regarding issues of race.
