Who is OneWheaton?
OneWheaton is a grassroots network of alumni and students of Wheaton College (IL) who affirm the full humanity and dignity of LGBTQ individuals and the relationships that are the natural expression of their identity.
OneWheaton is not a church or a denomination and does not promote any specific religious faith or belief system. Our unity and common ground comes from our shared experiences as Wheaton alumni and as individuals who embrace and affirm LGBTQ identities and relationships. Beyond that, our religious, social, and political affiliations and convictions vary widely. We celebrate the life diversity that resides within the OneWheaton community.
OneWheaton’s mission is to be an open, inclusive, and safe community for LGBTQ and Allied alumni and students of Wheaton College (IL). We strive to support students and alumni with compassion, counsel, and resources so that they can live full, vibrant lives.
Inspired by the "It Gets Better" campaign and emboldened by similar alumni movements happening at other Christian universities, we have come together as a voice of freedom and hope for students who feel their sexual orientation or gender identity relegates them to a life of loneliness and isolation. We strongly affirm that it doesn't. In our post-Wheaton lives, we have traversed the contradictions we once thought irreconcilable, and our sexuality has become an integral part of our broader pursuit of justice, compassion, and love.
The passion that drives alumni and student involvement in OneWheaton is best expressed in the letter that was distributed on campus on April 11, 2011. Read The Letter.
