We believe that students who choose Wilberforce are seeking an exceptional education. Many factors, such as academic preparation, interest, co-curricular activities, test scores, and potential, assist us in selecting the incoming class. We are seeking students who want to thrive in an educational environment based upon our core values.

Six Core Values guide our decision-making and practice:

  • Our students are the center of our existence; respect, spiritual values and commitment to their educational success is our priority.
  • We are an African Methodist Episcopal Church University that believes in the Living God; we embrace Christian principles as our foundation.
  • Ethics, integrity, and honesty, as exhibited in Christian Scripture, are an essential part of our spiritual growth and permit us to develop our relationships with God and one another.
  • We will provide a living-learning environment with excellent teaching and a challenging curriculum.
  • We are devoted to serving our community through personal and institutional outreach.
  • We embrace and cherish our history and take responsibility for distinguishing ourselves in the 21st century and beyond.
