Wesleyan Journey

(KWU students and faculty in Costa Rica, Spring 2014)

KWU is passionate about every student serving and learning both domestic and abroad. They will fully fund one Wesleyan Journey for every qualified student before they graduate!

One of the most innovative opportunities offered to Kansas Wesleyan University students is the option to register for a course which includes an intentional and meaningful service experience with travel, domestic or abroad. This is the Wesleyan Journey.

Students may register for a Wesleyan Journey as early as their freshman year at their own cost.

To receive a FULLY FUNDED Wesleyan Journey you must have the following criteria:

  1.  a GPA of 2.0 or above
  2.  have completed 4 semesters as a full-time student (WJ in your 5th semester)
  3.  if a transfer student; have completed 3 semesters as a full-time student (WJ in your 4th semester)
  4.  be in good academic and financial standing upon registration

Students will have a variety of Wesleyan Journeys to choose from during fall break, spring break, and summer sessions. Each Wesleyan Journey will be aligned with academic courses and their respective outcomes. These will typically be two credit hour courses.

Partnered with led2serveU, these courses being offered at Kansas Wesleyan will all have intentional serving components. This partnership allows KWU the chance to provide life-changing, service-learning opportunities to students with an established organization that has strong relationships with partner communities all across the globe. 

In addition to faculty members traveling with their students and teaching the course, a led2serve Journey Leader will travel with them and lead them into established partner locations. They will support the faculty and oversee all logistics, serving initiatives and communicate with community partners in each location.

Wesleyan Journeys for the 2015-2016 academic year will be announced in December, 2014. Funded Wesleyan Journeys will begin in the fall of 2015.
