McGovern Center for Leadership and Public Service awards first ever McGovern Legacy Scholarship in honor of late George McGovern

Tuesday, February 25, 2014

Dakota Wesleyan University’s McGovern Center for Leadership and Public Service has named its first ever McGovern Legacy Scholar.

Amy Zeller, of Elk Point, was named the 2013-14 McGovern Legacy Scholar during DWU’s Randall Scholarship Day earlier in the month. The McGovern Legacy Scholarship is a new scholarship offered at the university in tribute to Sen. George McGovern who passed away in 2012. Zeller is a senior at Elk Point-Jefferson High School and the daughter of Tim and Tama Zeller.

The McGovern Legacy Scholarship is currently the largest scholarship of this kind offered at DWU and covers tuition up to 16 credits for each semester in the 2013-14 academic year and is renewable for up to four years of continued enrollment at DWU with maintenance of academic requirements and involvement with the McGovern Center. This scholarship was created to honor McGovern and the 1972 campaign volunteers, while educating and inspiring future generations of student activists to volunteerism, public service and to work for a just society.

“DWU feels honored to have the opportunity to prepare Ms. Zellar for a life of leadership and service to others during her tenure as a McGovern Legacy Scholar,” said Dr. Alisha Vincent, director of the McGovern Center. “We believe she has the potential to make a significant impact on our communities in a way that would honor both George and Eleanor McGovern, as well as those who established this scholarship to honor him.”

The Friends of the McGovern ’72 Campaign Scholarship fund was established in 2012 through the Leonard and Sophie Davis Foundation in remembrance of the 40th anniversary of the presidential campaign to honor McGovern and the 1972 McGovern Presidential Campaign volunteers. Thousands of 1972 campaign volunteers’ lives have been positively impacted by their volunteerism and by the life and legacy of Sen. McGovern, according to Vincent.

DWU is affiliated with the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church and offers majors and minors in more than 40 liberal arts and professional fields.

Benefits of Online Learning

Monday, February 17, 2014

As a recent graduate or a professional seeking advancement, Dakota Wesleyan University (DWU) knows you manage many responsibilities each day.

That is why the online M.B.A. and RN-B.S. programs at DWU were designed to blend into your existing schedule.

The greatest benefit of taking online courses from DWU is the flexibility. When and how long you log on is completely up to you.  You can choose to log in for five minutes to check messages before work or wait and devote a few hours after the kids go to sleep.

While you complete your coursework, you will join a peer cohort, which posts messages in online chat groups and completes team assignments. With a diverse group of students, you will have ample opportunity to share real-world experiences. You may even take classes alongside leaders who have achieved success in the position you’re pursuing.

Online courses at DWU were designed to alleviate several other concerns associated with returning to the classroom. You don’t need to commute or take night classes.  You can edit answers before clicking submit; analyze and even research another student’s response before contributing your own.  In online courses you don’t need to be nervous about interacting with a professor face-to-face.

Our online professors empathize with students balancing busy lives. Like you, they juggle the online program in addition to other professional responsibilities. Our professors were selected to teach these courses for their professional and academic achievements, but they were also chosen due to their ability to motivate and support students.

When thinking about how an online degree might fit into your long-term schedule, know that the decision to take one or two courses each eight-week session is also yours. If you enroll and you need a break, take a semester or more off without any repercussions.

We give credit for hard work, too. Applicants to the RN-B.S. program can receive credit toward their degree for hours worked up to 12 credits or 1,500 hours. If you are interested in our RN-B.S. program, please contact us to request more information.

We respect your time. To find out more, register for one of our 30-minute M.B.A. Info Webinars.

Monday, February 17, 2014

Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell is bringing its best to four cities out West.

Four DWU choirs and the Wesleyan Bells will embark on a spring tour the end of February, making stops in Scottsbluff, Neb., Guernsey, Wyo., and Longmont and Brighton, Colo. The tour will conclude with a concert at the First United Methodist Church of Mitchell, S.D. These concerts are all free and open to the public.

“We love taking our show on the road and this will be an excellent way for the Dakota Wesleyan music department to reach out to other communities,” said Dr. Clinton Desmond, choral director at DWU. “We have several excited alumni who have helped us with tour planning and are inviting us into their churches and homes. Opportunities like this help DWU stay connected, and also allow us a chance to show people how much our program has grown.”

The schedule for the tour is as follows:
*Thursday, Feb. 27, 7 p.m., First United Methodist Church of Scottsbluff, Neb.
*Friday, Feb. 28, 9 a.m., Guernsey High School, Guernsey, Wyo.; 7 p.m., Hover Manor Independent Living, Longmont, Colo.

*Sunday, March 2, 9:15 a.m., Brighton United Methodist Church
*Monday, March 3, 7 p.m., First United Methodist Church, Mitchell

The program will take approximately 90 minutes and consists of multiple pieces performed by the Wesleyan Choir, the Singing Scotchmen, the Women’s Chamber Choir, the Highlanders and the Wesleyan Bells.

Some of the pieces by the choir include: “Hark, I Hear the Harps Eternal,” “With a Lily in Your Hand,” “What Wondrous Love Is This,” and a Hebrew love song, “Erev Shel Shoshanim.” The Bells will perform six pieces, including “Eye of the Tiger” and a “Super Mario Brothers” medley.

The Singing Scotchmen is Dakota Wesleyan’s new men’s choir, which will perform “The Morning Trumpet,” “Steal Away,” and “Free Fallin’.”

The Highlanders is the premier ensemble at DWU featuring students from many majors, selected by audition. They will perform selections from their recent performance at the winter convention of the South Dakota Chapter of the American Choral Director’s Assocation. These selections include “Soldier Boy,” by John Rutter; “La Bataglia Taliana,” by Matthias Werrecore,” and “Three Songs for Chorus a Cappella,” by Philip Glass.

The Women’s Choir will perform a cappella arrangements based on three recent pop hits, “Titanium,” “Landslide,” and “I Knew You Were Trouble.”

The DWU music and theatre departments are joining forces this March for the spring musical – “Les Miserables” will be performed at the end of the month on campus. For ticket information, please visit www.dwu.edu.


DWU invites community to African American religious music presentation

Thursday, February 6, 2014

Music transcends languages and represents cultures in unique ways, which is why during Black History Month, Dakota Wesleyan University in partnership with the South Dakota Humanities Council will present “Lift Every Voice and Sing!”

The lecture will be from 6:30 to 8 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 18, in the Wagner Chapel at DWU. For those interested in learning more about African American religious music, this event is free and open to the public.

Joyce Jefferson and Jerry Wilske have researched the history of African American religious music from the time it was brought to the Americas to today. During the presentation, they explain the results of their research and conclude with the song brothers James Weldon and J. Rosamond Johnson wrote in 1900, “Lift Every Voice and Sing!”

“This song is still sung today with the same hope and fervor as it was four years after the 1896 Plessy vs. Ferguson decision, which ushered in ‘separate-but-equal’ Jim Crowism,” stated a release. “They share the evolution of music, race relations and the hope for today as expressed in the lyrics of ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing!’”

This program is sponsored by DWU Multicultural Committee in honor of Black History Month and made possible by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Biographies provided by the South Dakota Humanities Council:

Joyce Jefferson has pursued sharing South Dakota African American history, legacy and experience since 1998. She and a group called “It's About Time! The African American Experience,” launched the pictorial exhibition “Corporals, Cooks and Cowboys: African American Pioneers in the Black Hills,” with the Journey Museum.  Jefferson has researched and shared the stories of African Americans who lived in and around Dakota Territory and South Dakota primarily in Chautauqua style to enhance the learning experience.

Jerry Wilske, former executive director of the Oscar Micheaux Center in Gregory and long-time organizer of the annual Oscar Micheaux Book and Film Festival, promotes African American history and culture. Wilske has spoken throughout the Midwest and Canada on Oscar Micheaux and his works. He is currently a board member of the South Dakota African American History Museum. An accomplished musician and former music professor, Wilske, joins Jefferson to present “Lift Every Voice and Sing: the Evolution of Spirituals.”


This is What Online Learning Looks Like at DWU

Monday, February 3, 2014

As you consider pursuing your online degree at Dakota Wesleyan University (DWU), you might be wondering, quite literally, “What does online learning look like at DWU?"

Let me walk you through what you can expect.

After you log into the Digital (Virtual) Campus from our website dwu.edu, you will then go to the “My Courses Dashboard” screen to access your courses, due dates, and recent messages. Once you click on a course, you will see the page is divided up into three areas. The far left side of the screen has all of your course information, such as syllabus, readings, assignments, etc. 

Orientation Course

The center area describes the learning activities. You can print PDFs of the syllabus and the assignments—many of our students appreciate this feature. Content is also delivered via podcasts, videos, PowerPoint presentations, and Flash animation. 

You will find the pages easy to understand and navigate. Our clearly displayed learning outcomes make sure you understand what the professor expects.

You can also post questions at the bottom of any screen and the professor’s answer will appear there, too. When you post a question or participate in a forum discussion, your name and photo will appear. The same is true for your professors and classmates.

Student / Professor Exchange

On the far right you will see announcements and messages. You can also see who is currently online and you can instant message with them. You can also post to the “coffeehouse,” which is an open-ended forum generally used for socializing or encouragement. 

You will learn with a cohort, meaning that you will move through your program with many of the same students. You will quickly develop a supportive community, celebrating successes and helping each other through any challenges—in the classroom or in life. 

If at any point you have technical difficulties or any other questions or concerns, you can reach out to your professor—or the help desk—and ask for assistance. All are very responsive.

Still have questions or concerns about how your courses will work? That’s okay. Our orientation, offered three weeks before class starts, will take you through everything you need to know to succeed in your online degree program at DWU. 

If you would like to find out more about our fully online M.B.A. program, I invite you to register for one of our 30-minute M.B.A. Info Webinars. If you are interested in our RN-B.S. program, please contact us to request more information

DWU athletics Freezin’ for a Reason

Wednesday, January 22, 2014

Several members of the Dakota Wesleyan University athletics department will be freezing – but for a very good reason – in February.

Tiger head football coach Ross Cimpl, wrestling coach Matt Sedivy and graduate assistant Kevin Kelly, track and field coach Pat Belling and sports information director Leah Rado are all taking part in the Special Olympics South Dakota’s Polar Plunge.

Cimpl, and potentially some of the DWU football players, Sedivy, Kelly and Rado will all be plunging on Saturday, Feb. 8, and Belling is raising money to help support the plunge as the Tigers have an indoor track meet in Storm Lake, Iowa, that day. Sedivy and Kelly are on the DWU Wrestling plunge team, and for the first $100 raised, Sedivy will plunge into the water, and if another $100 or more is raised, Kelly will also plunge. In order to plunge, each participant needs to raise at least $100, all of which goes directly to the Special Olympics South Dakota.

After raising $100, participants are allowed to plunge into a tank of water at 2 p.m. on Feb. 8 in the Blarney’s parking lot in Mitchell. Participants are encouraged to wear costumes or appropriate attire: Sedivy and Kelly will be plunging in DWU wrestling singlets.

Belling, Rado, Sedivy and Kelly all have pages set up on the Plunge’s website for supporters to donate to the cause. Donate to Belling here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/PatrickBelling/2014-mitchell-polar-plunge

Sedivy and Kelly are signed up under DWU wrestling. Donate to the wrestling coaches’ cause here: http://www.firstgiving.com/team/254789

Donate to Rado here: http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/LeahRado/2014-mitchell-polar-plunge

Cimpl and the football team do not have a page set up yet, so contact Cimpl at rocimpl@dwu.edu to donate. Donations can also be sent to each individual at the DWU athletic office.

Special Olympics South Dakota provides year-round sports training and competition in a variety of Olympic-type sports for children and adults with intellectual disabilities.
