Stark Lectures
Dr. Franklin Stark, a beloved alumnus of Dakota Wesleyan, endowed the Stark Lectures“ present publicly, persons who were living examples of the truths of the Biblical message...The goal was to find and bring to the campus persons who, by the authenticity of their own lives, works, and insight, would demonstrate the connection today between faith and works.”

Through Dr. Stark’s gift, numerous religious leaders, authors, educators, politicians, ethicists, journalists and entertainers of national stature have been brought to the campus. DWU has sought annually to fulfill his intent in establishing the series through its invitations to these leaders.
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.
