History

WIU was founded by Roger Babson, an entrepreneur and business theorist in the first half of the 20th century.

Webber is home to a $750,000 sewage plant. In 2008 President Keith Wade sold the naming rights to the plant on eBay, raising $6,800 in the process.[1] More recently, in 2010, Wade purchased a Skype booth to benefit the array of international students, with the naming rights also being sold on eBay. This raised $257 for the school.[2]

Academics

The university is accredited by the Commission on Colleges of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools to award degrees at the associates, bachelors and masters levels.
