Each year Dakota Wesleyan University honors individuals with special awards to honor alumni who have demonstrated their commitment to “Sacrifice or Service” through personal achievement and contributions to society and DWU.

In 2009, the university organized into three colleges and aligned the alumni awards to reflect the change. Three prestigious awards are given each fall to alumni who represent the colleges through their college major, their professional life, or their volunteer and philanthropic activities.
Dakota Wesleyan University was named to the 2013 President's Higher Education Community Service Honor Roll. This designation is the highest honor a college or university can receive for its commitment to volunteering, service-learning and civic engagement.
Dakota Wesleyan University is proudly affiliated with the Dakotas Conference of the United Methodist Church. Members of any and all faiths are welcome and encouraged to experience an education based on learning, leadership, faith and service.
Dakota Wesleyan University has been honored as a College of Distinction through demonstration of excellence in these areas: engaged students, great teaching, vibrant communities and successful outcomes.
