Ohio Wesleyan University was established in 1842 and defines itself as a community of teachers and students, which aims to develop the students' intellect and character. Since its founding, the university has kept a connection with the Methodist (now United Methodist) Church to offer scholarships, leadership, and service to both the community and the Church.

The university has three objectives in its work with students: to impart knowledge, to develop important capabilities of students, and to integrate education in the context of values. 

Ohio Wesleyan has a total of Ohio Wesleyan enrollees, all students coming from 42  states and U.S. territories. International and U.S. multicultural students come from 32 countries, making up 28% of the total population. 

The university offers more than 70+ majors for its undergraduate program, which include Business Administration, Education, International Studies, Pre-Nursing, and Computer Science. 

For graduate programs, the university has partnered with top universities across the country as part of the Regional Education Partners Scholarship program enabling students to pursue advanced degrees in management, IT, or public policy. Several programs offer special scholarships and financial aid, and some offer accelerated pathways to a master's degree.
