Leadership & President’s Office

Welcome To DWU.

President Amy NovakDakota Wesleyan University is a great place to learn, lead, serve and explore your faith.  

We are committed to an education that prepares students for the careers of today and tomorrow.  We know that employers are looking for students who can communicate, analyze, persuade and collaborate, while being technically proficient and able to continue learning.

We offer an experience that transforms and prepares, in an atmosphere that is focused on the student both in the classroom and through cocurricular activities.
