Mission Statement

Educating for Life: The Jesuit traditions of educational excellence and service to others guide all the programs at Wheeling Jesuit University. By integrating learning, research, and economic development with classical knowledge and Christian revelation, the University seeks to foster competence, creativity, and innovation both 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. Educating Men and Women for Others: In its faculty and students, its research, and its outreach, the University is national and international. Yet, as the only Catholic college in West Virginia, Wheeling Jesuit also values its distinctive mission to the immediate area, educating local men and women and returning them to enrich their own communities. Wheeling Jesuit University firmly believes its graduates will enter into the professional world, prepared to use their God-given talents not solely for personal fulfillment but as men and women in service to others. Educating for Leadership: To model the Jesuit 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 libeal arts and, above all, the example of Jesus Christ, the University endeavors to produce intelligent, moral leaders who will champion the Jesuit values of faith, peace, and justice. Wheeling Jesuit envisions a dynamic leadership role for the Univesity in the lives of its students and in the world at large.
