About Wabash

As we near our bicentennial in 2032, Wabash is invested in being a small college that delivers out-sized results. We are committed to deeply engaged teaching and learning that positively changes the lives of young people and to our mission to educate young men to think critically, act responsibly, lead effectively, and live humanely in a difficult world.

Wabash College runs on relationships that are forged in the classroom, living units, locker rooms, clubs, and performance halls. Building and sustaining those relationships are our highest priorities. Everyone at Wabash should feel respected and at home on our campus – from the first handshake to ringing out the seniors and across the arc of the lives of our alumni and the faculty and staff who support them.
