Wilberforce University is the nation’s oldest private, historically black University owned and operated by African Americans. 

Wilberforce University is a  community which values and respects diversity of thought, critical thinking, intellectual rigor, spiritual development and the passionate pursuit of disciplined habits of the mind, spirit and body.

It has been strategic in defining itself as a premier liberal arts institution with an entrepreneurial intention. This has allowed it to be especially focused on curricula and program development and student engagement which creates an academic culture which celebrates and cultivates the liberal arts while encouraging and developing, in our students, entrepreneurial thinking and action.
