Schools, Colleges & Universities

Education is a core value of The United Methodist Church that dates back to the earliest days of the Methodist movement in 18th century England. John Wesley believed that education was the key to a fuller, richer life. He championed greater educational accessibility as a way to ensure that leaders would act ethically and responsibly.

Building on those Wesleyan values, United Methodist-related educational institutions strive to provide quality education, to be vital and vibrant faith communities and to prepare students for lives of committed service.

Today, there are hundreds of United Methodist-related schools, colleges and universities all across the globe, including 117 in just the United States alone. Each school is unique to the community and region that it serves, but they all share a commitment to expanding educational accessibility and training new generations of leaders for the betterment of the world.
