Welcome to the Wesley Center at the University of Iowa

We have a rich history of social justice activism and faithful witness, spiritual formation, and community outreach. We are rooted in Christian and Wesleyan traditions, but you need not identify as Christian or United Methodist to come here for community, conversation, and spiritual renewal. We seek to revive and practice the best of these spiritual traditions. We value realness - real community, real conversation, real questions, real connection, and (of course) real food.
