Dakota Wesleyan University

Dakota Wesleyan University is rooted in our four values: lifelong learning, leadership development, faith exploration and genuine service to others. These values are deeply embedded in our United Methodist tradition and provide guidance and support to DWU graduates in their roles as successful members of the local and global communities. Our student body is purposefully small, which allows for an ideal student:faculty ratio of 13:1. This means that every student at DWU is more than just a number – in fact, we use the Clifton StrengthsFinder to develop the unique strengths of each student as an individual.
