School Information
"Ohio Wesleyan’s goal is to provide every student with transformational experiences that will prepare them for the causes, careers, and graduate school opportunities they want to pursue. "We do that through close relationships with faculty-mentors—and through a unique academic program called The OWU Connection..." "On campus, OWU offers 90 majors, and about a third of students graduate with multiple majors. "Off campus, students travel around the world to study, conduct research, and shake up their view of the world. Whether it's studying abroad, taking a valuable internship, participating in a Travel-Learning Course, or proposing a Theory-to-Practice grant, students bring learning to life... "The 10:1 faculty to student ratio fosters lively classes." The university also enrolls over 1,400 students. (Source: https://www.owu.edu/about/) (Source: https://www.owu.edu/about/fast-facts/)
General Information
As part of its ongoing and collaborative "Equity, Anti-Racism" initiative, OWU has appointed 25 faculty to serve as "equity fellows". These 25 fellows will "meet biweekly to discuss readings, write reflections on pedagogy and process, and work to make our teaching and learning spaces more inclusive and equitable. Sessions will focus on various aspects of organizational practice and will require faculty to reflect on their identities as scholars and teachers. Faculty will consider how classroom, departmental, and institutional practices directly impact issues of inclusivity and equity in students’ personal and academic lives." No mandatory Critical Race Training sessions are yet required of students. However, see developments below:
