Dakota Wesleyan University is the model of the 21st century small university.
The school offers three undergraduate colleges – the Donna Starr Christen College of Healthcare, Fitness and Sciences, the College of Leadership and Public Service, and the College of Arts and Humanities – each of which are designed to strengthen connections between programs of study, graduate schools, and professional success.

Students who live on campus at Dakota Wesleyan University are members of a close-knit community.
Throughout the residence halls you will find students challenging each other intellectually through discussion and study, creating lasting memories while relaxing and participating in recreational activities.
The university also unveiled the College of Online and Adult Learning the summer of 2015 to better serve the growing number of students who are finishing undergraduate degrees online, completing the Bachelor of Science in nursing degree, or pursuing one of two master’s degrees: a Master of Arts in Education and a Master of Business Administration.
In addition to the three colleges, DWU’s Center for Talent Development guides students on the path of self-discovery, while the individualized study program can help design a personalized major that is unique to each student.
