Dakota Wesleyan University's Board of Trustees is the governing body that determines the university's general, educational, and financial policies.
"I'm grateful to President Novak for this opportunity," Swier said. "I am excited to join my fellow trustees in working together with DWU's phenomenal leadership, staff, faculty, and students to help the university continue its incredible growth and fulfill its mission."
Located in Mitchell, South Dakota, Dakota Wesleyan University is rooted in four values: lifelong learning, leadership development, faith exploration and genuine service to others. These values are deeply embedded in DWU's United Methodist traditions and provide guidance and support to DWU's graduates in their roles as successful member of the local and global communities.
