Message from the President

Welcome to the first steps in realizing your potential for excellence and transforming your dreams into an exciting and productive future.  There are many reasons people are attracted to Wesley College, and the opportunities abound once you arrive.

 Maybe one of the reasons you are drawn to Wesley College is because of its unmatched reputation as one of the finest and most affordable comprehensive liberal arts and sciences colleges in the Mid-Atlantic.  Maybe you are attracted to Wesley College because of the many programs and degrees we offer, including Baccalaureate degrees in 20 areas of study and Master’s degrees in Business, Education, Sport Leadership, Environmental Sciences, and Nursing, which was recognized by U.S. News and World Report as one of the Top 50 Graduate Nursing programs in the country.  Maybe it is because you are drawn to Wesley College’s beautiful campus centrally located in the historic and capital city of Dover, Delaware. Maybe one of the reasons that you are drawn to Wesley College is because of what others have been saying about Wesley College like College Raptor Inc., who recently named Wesley College the best “hidden gem institution” in the state of Delaware.  You might be drawn to Wesley College because of the numerous grants that we receive to ensure our students’ educational and professional opportunities are second to none, like the $1.5 million from the U.S. Department of Education that our Education Department received, or the $400,000 grant received from a valued local foundation for our new Occupational Therapy program that we will be launching in 2016, or our annual Cannon Scholarships, to name a few.  Maybe you are a student athlete, and are attracted to Wesley College, because of our unrivaled athletic department which includes several nationally ranked teams, as well as a football program that has consistently been ranked as one of the top teams in the nation for the last decade.

What attracted me to Wesley College is the true sense of family that abounds on the Wesley College campus, and in the Dover, and “Greater Delaware”, community.  You are not merely a student at a college; you are an integral and valued member of the Wesley College family.  Our family has unmatched dedication, as well as world class expertise, resident in our leadership, faculty, staff, administration, coaches, alumni, and community. 

So, for whatever reasons you are attracted to Wesley College, and no matter what your goals or dreams may be, one thing is for certain – Wesley College has something to offer you.  I invite you to visit our campus, and meet the various members of our Wesley College family. I am sure after visiting our campus and meeting our family you will be impressed with the passion, the people, and most importantly the potential and opportunities that await you. 

“Great Things Await” at Wesley College, and for all those who dare to seize the opportunity that Wesley College provides.  I look forward to welcoming you into our family.  Together we will help you realize your dreams and transform your potential for excellence into a bright and productive future. 

All The Best & Go Wolverines!

Robert E. Clark II

President, Wesley College
