Defense Acquisition University (March 26, 2007): DAU Midwest Region Partners with Indiana Wesleyan University.

Travis Stewart, dean, Defense Acquisition University (DAU) Midwest Region in Kettering, Ohio, and Dr. Sharon Drury, dean of College of Adult and Professional Studies, Indiana Wesleyan University (IWU), signed a Strategic Partnership Agreement on March 23, 2007. Under the terms of the Strategic Partnership Agreement, the Defense Acquisition University and Indiana Wesleyan University's College of Adult and Professional Studies agree to work collaboratively in order to provide educational opportunities for the currently enrolled and potential students of each institution.

The Midwest Region has a significant number of acquisition, technology and logistics workforce personnel located in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, Illinois, and Indiana where IWU Education Centers are located. These individuals will find this Strategic Partnership Agreement very beneficial to assist with their ongoing educational and training requirements.

Indiana Wesleyan University's main campus is located in Marion, Indiana, midway between Indianapolis and Fort Wayne, along 1-69. Established in 1920, this 300-acre campus is where 2,800 students attend IWU's traditional four-year liberal arts college and residential graduate school.

In 1985, IWU began offering programs uniquely designed for working adults. It soon became evident that IWU's combination of conveniently scheduled classes and adult-friendly services were in high demand. Since 1987, IWU's College of Adult & Professional Studies has established seven Education Centers across Indiana. Recently IWU has grown beyond Indiana and has established Education Centers in Ohio and Kentucky. There is an IWU Education Center located in Dayton, Ohio.

For adults across Indiana and living in Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and Illinois near the Indiana border, IWU has brought its adult degree programs into their local communities. IWU has held classes in more than 90 locations across Indiana. Wherever there are 15 to 20 adults seeking the same degree, IWU will find a meeting place in their community and bring the textbooks, course materials, and teachers to them for the duration of their program.

DAU Midwest Region, Kettering, Ohio, serves the 12 surrounding Midwest states and has a number of Strategic Partnership Agreements within the area's academic communities. DAU Midwest has made Strategic Partnership Agreements with the following institutions: Bellevue University, Central Michigan University, Cuyahoga Community College, DeVry University, Eastern Michigan University, Lawrence Technological University, National-Lewis University, Park University, Sinclair Community College, Webster University, Wilberforce University, Wright State University, University of Dayton, and University of Missouri-Rolla.
