Message from the President

IWU President, Dr. David Wright

More than 30 years ago, Indiana Wesleyan University made a bold and groundbreaking commitment to serving adult learners with the launching of the dynamic LEAP (Leadership Education for Adult Professionals) program. The innovative approach to serving diverse learners had an initial focus on business education programs, which would lead to the formation of what is now the DeVoe School of Business, one of the Midwest’s largest and most influential business schools. The DeVoe School of Business has served learners through providing a faith-based business education which sharpens skills, clarifies reasoning, and helps students to further define personal and professional calling.

Today, the DeVoe School of Business delivers education onsite at 16 regional education centers and online nationwide to thousands of learners across the landscape of the marketplace. With an alumni base numbering in the tens of thousands, the DeVoe School of Business has influenced the leadership of many business leaders throughout the nation. A hallmark of the DeVoe School of Business from its inception is the commitment to reach learners by taking the educational experience to them, from manufacturing plant floors to office buildings.

The DeVoe Report is no different. We are continuing to find new ways to take education directly into the marketplace to increase business professionals’ access to valuable learning. It is my hope that you find the content of this reader helpful to your daily work. I am grateful to the many business leaders and industry experts who have partnered with us to bring this publication together. We look forward to sharing future editions with you.

Dr. David Wright - President, Indiana Wesleyan University
