HistoryEdit

The seeds of WJU's founding were planted as early as the 19th century. Richard Whelan, bishop of the Diocese of Wheeling, lobbied the Society of Jesus to establish a university in the growing city. Over a century later, Whelan's original vision came to fruition. After a donor, Sara Tracy, left her estate to the diocese, it purchased land for a Jesuit college from Mt. De Chantal Visitation Academy.[6]

Wheeling College was founded through a partnership of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston with the Maryland Society of Jesus. Ground was broken on November 24, 1953, and the college was officially incorporated on September 25, 1954. It opened to students on September 26, 1955. The establishment of the college required $2.75 million in start-up costs.[7] Overcoming the difficulties of temporary facilities and a faculty of twelve Jesuit priests and four lay professors, the school grew considerably.

For the 1987–1988 school year, the university became Wheeling Jesuit College, and in July 1996, gained university status.[8]

In 2012, university leadership was accused by the federal government of misappropriating NASA grant money received for sponsored programs. Wheeling Jesuit settled with the federal government in 2015, paying $2.3 million in restitution.[9]

In March 2013, the university announced the selection of Fr. James Fleming as its tenth president. Fleming took office effective July 1, 2013.[10] Fleming resigned from the presidency on January 3, 2017.

Jesuit heritageEdit

Prior to 2019, the Jesuit community was active in the process of education at Wheeling. In addition, the Jesuits were involved in many other academic works, such as the Appalachian Institute on campus.[11] Members of Wheeling's Jesuit Community reside at Whelan Hall, dedicated in 1955.[12] The Jesuit community and tradition for critical thinking were reflected in the school's curriculum and mission.[13] Wheeling Jesuit University was a member of the Association of Jesuit Colleges and Universities.[14][15]

In April 2019, as part of a broader restructuring of its academic programs, the university announced the elimination of its programs in Theology and Philosophy that are key to its identity as a Jesuit institution.[16] The Jesuits in turn decided to end their academic affiliation with the university at the end of the 2018-2019 academic year, while continuing to provide "an ongoing Jesuit presence" through its campus ministry and other programs.[17] Two months later, Monsignor Kevin Quirk resigned form his position as chair of the university's board of trustees after The Washington Post published details from confidential report alleging that one of his former colleagues was guilty of sexual abuse and financial impropriety.[18]

Admissions and rankingsEdit

According to the WJU's page on the U-CAN Network,[27] the average high school GPA of the freshman class is 3.5[28] The school is given a selectivity score of 81 out of 100 by the Princeton Review. In 1997, WJU was named as the fourth-best educational value in the southeast, and the 15th-best college in the region.[29] In addition, the school is ranked as the 18th best master's university in the South by U.S. News and World Report.[30] The 2009 Forbes magazine ranking placed WJU as 180 of 600 colleges,[31] a marked improvement from their No. 437 rank in 2008.[32] Forbes ranked the university as the 79th best value in America.[33] The university is ranked among the John Templeton Foundation's Colleges that Encourage Character Development.[34]

AcademicsEdit

In honor of former WJU professor Fr. Stephen J. Laut, S.J., the university offers the Laut Honors Program. Throughout each school year, members of the program meet to discuss and study material related to that year's theme. At the conclusion of a student's sophomore year, students who have successfully completed the Laut program are invited to join the Ignatian Honors Seminar, a more rigorous program for which only six juniors and six seniors are selected.[35]

Wheeling Jesuit encourages all students to become actively involved in research in their desired fields. In many fields, seniors are required to complete a thesis or capstone project. In addition, students are actively encouraged to participate in the annual Student Research and Scholarship Symposium, in which students present research done over the past academic year.[36]

Graduate programsEdit

WJU's Center for Professional and Graduate Studies offers five graduate programs, a Master of Business Administration; Master of Accountancy; Master of Science in Nursing; Master of Science in Organizational Leadership; and a Doctor of Physical Therapy.[37]

The Center for Professional and Graduate Studies offers a Bachelor of Arts in Organizational Leadership and Development (BOLD) and a Master of Science in Organizational Leadership (MSOL). These are adult education programs that meet once a week in the evening.

Clifford M. Lewis, S.J. Appalachian InstituteEdit

The Appalachian Institute at Wheeling Jesuit University focuses on issues such as Appalachian health, hope, education, economic development, and coal impoundment, and has conducted research and produced exhibits regarding this issues.

In 2010, the university hosted the Ignatian Solidarity Network Spring Teach-In, which focused on issues of environmental sustainability and stewardship.[38] In September 2010, the Appalachian Institute held its second annual Appalachian Film Festival.[39]

Institute for the Study of Capitalism and MoralityEdit

As a result of a donation from BB&T, WJU in 2006 became home to the Institute for the Study of Capitalism and Morality. According to its website, the Institute desires to study the roles of capitalism in a free society. The institute also promotes research and essay competitions, forums and debates, and a lecture series. Lecturers for the 2007–2008 school year included Thomas Woods and Doug Bandow.[40] In 2011, the ISCM welcomed former BB&T CEO John A. Allison IV to campus.[41]

Academic facilitiesEdit

 
WJU's Donahue Hall

Acker Science Center[42]Edit

Named for the school's former president Rev. Fr. Thomas S. Acker, S.J.,[43] the center was built in 2002. It is home to classrooms and labs.

Donahue HallEdit

The oldest academic building on campus, Donahue Hall was constructed in 1955 and was renovated in 1988.[44] Donahue holds faculty offices, labs, and classrooms.[45] The hall is connected to the Acker Science Center via the "Acker bridge."

Mount de Chantal Conservatory of MusicEdit

The adjacent former girl's academy, Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy ceased operations in August 2010 and the Sisters of the Visitation who ran the school since its inception moved to the monastery at Georgetown Visitation Academy in Washington DC.[46] Wishing to see the Mount's legacy continued, the sisters gifted a large sum of money to establish and fund a Conservatory of Music at WJU.[47]

Thus the Mount de Chantal Conservatory of Music came to be in the lower floor of the university's CET building. The Conservatory features a recital hall, practice rooms, a parlor for students and visitors, and a gallery displaying art, antiques and archival materials from Mount de Chantal Visitation Academy.[48] Each year, one incoming female freshman receives a $10,000 Mount de Chantal Scholarship, renewable annually, through the Mount de Chantal Fine Arts Education Fund.[49]

In the Fall of 2013, Wheeling Jesuit University expanded its physical therapy doctoral program into downtown Wheeling, WV where it offers a free physical therapy clinic.[50]

AthleticsEdit

Wheeling Jesuit currently supports 20 NCAA Division II sports, including: Women's volleyball, men's and women's soccer, men's and women's golf, men's and women's cross country, men's and women's indoor and outdoor track & field, men's and women's swimming, men's and women's basketball, men's wrestling, men's and women's lacrosse, softball, and baseball. The Cardinals also have D1A men's rugby.

The university's home indoor athletic events for volleyball, basketball, wrestling and swimming are held in WJU's McDonough Center.[51] WJU's soccer and lacrosse teams play on the turfed Bishop Schmitt Field. The Cardinals baseball and softball teams call the J.B. Chambers Complex located off campus located along I-470 as their home fields.

Wheeling Jesuit University competes in NCAA Division II as part of the Mountain East Conference (MEC) as one of the four-year conference's founding members. Prior to the MEC, the Cardinals played in the West Virginia Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WVIAC) from 1957 to 2013.

Campus lifeEdit

Wheeling Jesuit University's campus features fifteen buildings,[52] six of which are residence halls.[53]

Residence lifeEdit

 
Looking toward Campion and McHugh Residence Halls on WJU's campus

The university has seven residence halls under its jurisdiction.

  • Campion – Housing for male freshman and upperclassmen students with 1 floor for female students
  • McHugh – Housing for male freshman students
  • Ignatius – Upgraded co-ed housing for upperclass students, featuring an "Ace Floor" for approved, academically achieved students with around-the-clock quiet hours
  • Kirby – Upgraded housing for female students, occasionally freshmen
  • Sara Tracy – Housing for female freshman students
  • Thomas More – Co-ed housing for upperclass students in the format of quads
  • Steenrod – Apartment housing for graduate students, off the main campus but on university-owned property across Washington Avenue.
  • Cardinal Commons - Opened in 2014. Located on Washington Avenue, 36-unit apartment style building. Part of a public-private partnership. The university does not own the building, but WJU students are the only tenants.

Campion/McHugh HallsEdit

Campion and McHugh Halls host most of the male students on campus. Campion is adjacent to McHugh and connected via a common stairwell. The halls share a common lounge, kitchenette, and study area. Rooms in each measure 15'5" W by 10'10" L.[54] Despite these similarities, the halls can be differentiated by the fact that Campion is air conditioned, while McHugh is not.[55] In addition, McHugh is three years older than Campion, having been dedicated in 1959,[56] while Campion was dedicated in 1962.[57]

Ignatius HallEdit

Ignatius Hall, dedicated in 1993,[58] is a co-educational residence hall for Upperclass students. Rooms are air-conditioned, and have private bathrooms. Each residence floor has laundry facilities and TV lounges, and each room is 12'8" W by 25' L.[59] The hall is named after St. Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus.

Kirby Hall/Sara Tracy HallEdit

Dedicated in 2000, Kirby hall is one of the most recently built Halls on campus. The Hall houses 64 female students in 32 rooms. Each room has a bathroom, and the hall itself has a kitchen, laundry room, and lounge.[60]

Sara Tracy Hall, dedicated in 1959,[61] is a residence hall for female freshmen. The hall is divided into smaller hallways, all of which share common laundry facilities. The hall provides quick access to facilities, such as the Chapel of Mary and Joseph, the Mailroom, and the cafeteria.[62]

Thomas MoreEdit

Opened in April 1968. Thomas More houses upperclass students. Thomas More is a themed housing co-ed residential facility. Each quad is responsible for one social event a year that relates to the quad's theme. Rooms are divided into "quads." Each quad houses four, six, or eight students, and has three bedrooms, a lounge, and one bathroom. Residents are responsible for cleaning their own bathrooms. Inspections are done doing various university breaks.

A typical floor has four quads, and a community lounge. Laundry rooms are located on the first, second, third, and fourth floors. Telephone and Cable TV is provided. Thomas More resident assistants work to create a sense of community on their floor and in the building.[63]

Student organizations and publicationsEdit
