William Osborne Society


We aim to serve God through our organization, by encouraging black students to grow in Christ while celebrating their ethnic identities, promoting an inclusive environment, advocating for the well-being of black students and building bridges to unify the campus body.



In order to achieve our mission we have developed a fourfold vision for the William Osborne Society. Our first aim is to promote Black fellowship and leadership. Our second aim is to provide opportunities for community outreach and service. Our third aim is to invite Wheaton students to share and participate in Black cultures. And our fourth, and final, aim is to worship in the context of the Black church.

William Osborne Society was established in 1987.

A Student's Insight

One of the highlights of the year has been the Rhythm and Praise Chapel service that Willie-O organized. They shared their experiences and culture with the rest of campus in an offer of worship to God.
