The Athletics department is committed to the overall development and welfare of its student-athletes. Through campus leadership initiatives, community outreach events and academic support sessions, the department encourages student-athletes to become leaders on campus and in the community, as well as avid students in the classroom.

A member of the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) and the Association of Independent Institutions (A.I.I.), JWU's Denver Campus welcomes quality student-athletes who wish to become a part of the 13-team athletic program. The Denver Campus' teams travel throughout the Midwest and Rocky Mountain regions to compete against some of the top teams in the nation. Team information, schedules and game results can be found on the Denver Athletics website.
