Dakota Wesleyan University


Many universities claim to be “different.” At Dakota Wesleyan University, our deeply rooted values of lifelong learning, leadership development, faith exploration, and genuine service to others are the cornerstones of what makes us “different.” Why DWU?

Traditions embedded in our United Methodist values. Faculty who teach rigorously and care deeply. Students who exemplify synergism and develop lifelong friendships. Parents who entrust their children to the care of the college community. Faith leaders embody conviction and principles in their ministries. Graduates who impact the world with their leadership and service. And donors who give willingly to sustain our efforts.
