People start businesses, discover cures and invent new technologies when they
trust the inner voice pushing them forward. We encourage our students to listen to that voice. As a non-sectarian, independent university, Wilkes operates under the philosophy that worthwhile endeavor occurs when people possess the courage of their convictions.
A Wilkes University education encourages freedom of thought.
By offering small classes with Ph.D.-level faculty, Wilkes provides an environment where students can speak their minds and actively engage in the subject matter—this under the guidance of people passionately interested in their fields—and your progress. As one Wilkes faculty member puts it: We believe you can do things you may not even have dreamed of.
