Welcome from the Dean of Students


Welcome to Bishop Nation!

It is my privilege to welcome you to the community of scholars that is North Carolina Wesleyan University.  A University is more than just buildings and grounds.  It is what one feels and perceives.  It is our collective goals and individual dreams.  It is a community of mutual learners and educators seeking our purpose as we serve humanity.

We believe strongly in the power of YOU.  In our world today, a University education must prepare you for more than just a career.  It must prepare you to self-reflect, to view the world through the eyes of others, to think critically, to both lead and follow, and most importantly, to care.  I believe in the power of a liberal arts education to prepare you for these tasks.  North Carolina Wesleyan University stands ready to help you as you seek to find your calling in a personal, practical and purpose-driven way.

Our core values of knowledge and understanding, integrity and accountability, patience and respect, and kindness and empathy will guide your journey.  This student handbook contains important information about University policies and services.  These are designed to assist you and create an environment conducive to living and learning.  Please take time to familiarize yourself with this document.

I look forward to partnering with you on your journey of self-discovery as you follow your dreams.  Please don’t hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance.

Jason Modlin, Ed.D.
