Dakota Wesleyan University is a fully accredited comprehensive institution of higher learning with a main campus in Mitchell, South Dakota, USA. For over 130 years, the university has consistently delivered superior learning curricula to students from all parts of the world, and remains a strong regional educational facility in the surrounding states.


DWU Abroad is established to provide ready access to Africa’s best and brightest seeking to advance their personal and professional goals through higher education in the United States. The university has made this possible by establishing two offices in Africa….Nairobi, Kenya, and Abuja, Nigeria. These offices provide assistance to prospective African students seeking admission into any of the university’s academic and professional programs, advise them of available scholarships, and serve as a continuous link between the students and their respective countries once admitted.


The offices also serve a useful purpose of linking African universities and their faculties to Dakota Wesleyan University by enabling cooperative educational engagements, and making it possible for students to embark on exchange programs. Such linkages provide  substantive cross-cultural educational opportunities for students, and positive social externalities in surrounding communities and regional economies.
