John Wesley had a passion for uniting faith and knowledge in educating the whole person.  Since 1784, hundreds of institutions of learning have been founded by United Methodists or its predecessor denominations in the United States.  

That heritage continues today in the sponsorship of 10 major research universities, 13 seminaries, 82 liberal arts colleges, eight two-year colleges, one professional school and nine college preparatory schools. Your United Methodist Church continues to be involved in higher education today — faithful people cultivating faithful minds for faithful lives.   

The Board of Higher Education Ministries provides the connectional relationship between the General Church, annual conference, district and local churches and promotes the work and ministry of higher education and campus ministry. The Board has disciplinary responsibilities to the institutions of higher education in the Virginia Conference and oversees the mission and ministry of campus ministries related to and supported by the Virginia Conference.  

The Board also encourages support for the special offerings related to higher education (Black College Fund, United Methodist Student Day, World Communion Day, and Human Relations Day.)
