Wesley's Student Council seeks to promote the common welfare of the student body by acting as the voice of the student body through providing an open forum in which concerns can be raised, sponsoring various student organizations, and working with the administration, faculty, staff and community to ensure a supportive academic climate.

Sara Sheppard- Faculty Advisor
Student Council is present on this campus through its support of the student organizations listed here and as a liaison between administration and students. As a liaison between administration and students, we are constantly working for the improvement of the Wesley community. This comes in several forms including, but not limited to, the community meal for students, faculty, and staff each semester, and hosting forums around issues that have the potential to divide our community. The most recent product of these forums has been Heal Wesley—a collaborative effort with students, staff, administration, and alumni to make Wesley a space for holistic wellness. Student Council also produces Wesley Journal—a monthly publication with student submitted articles—and Wesley Journal Weekly—a weekly schedule of events that will be beneficial to the student community.
This year, we will continue our efforts to serve and unite the Wesley community, and we invite you to be a part of that. Our meetings will occur bi-weekly, and are open to all students. Next week, we will take nominations to fill 5 first-year positions on council, and elections will be the following week. We will also be hiring for two Wesley Journal positions that First Year students are encouraged to apply for—Editor and Copy Editor.
As we seek to empower students to make the most of their seminary experience, we encourage you to actively engage in the classroom and enrich your seminary experience by being more than a student but a member of the community—participate in worship services, attend faculty lectures, join student organizations, and have fun at the many social events that happen throughout the year.
We praise God for your presence in this community, and wish you success in following God’s call on your life. Please feel free to approach any of the executive officers if you have questions about student council or the Wesley community.
President: Robert Dantzler
We are blessed by many organizations, but want to encourage you to feel empowered to envision new organizations that may serve our community in new ways. All student organizations are required to attend the bi-weekly Student Council meetings, so if you are looking to connect with one of these organizations Student Council meetings are a good place to become acquainted. We are committed to encouraging student organizations to advertise regularly through Wesley Journal, weekly e-announcements and other new communication avenues, so that you are always aware of what you can plug into.
