Vicki Welch has taught communication courses at Dakota Wesleyan for more than 20 years. She is the department chair of communication and of journalism, and has taught courses covering all aspects of both disciplines.
Her degrees are from South Dakota State University, where she worked with SDSU Forensics and with Prairie Repertory Theatre.
Welch’s teaching philosophy centers on assisting students to achieve their full potential, especially in discovering their strengths as researchers, organizers and public speakers. “We all have important ideas to share. Competent communication is how we succeed in the world.”
