     “I enjoy coming to work every
     day because of the people. It    Dakota Wesleyan University | Mitchell, SD
    is a pleasure to work alongside
          dedicated, passionate       D akota Wesleyan University is modernizing
    individuals, who are committed               higher education. They are the first university in
        to helping our customers                 South Dakota to create a one-to-one program
          achieve their IT goals.”    through a partnership with Apple. In February of 2018,
                                      DWU in Mitchell, South Dakota announced a new
10                                    way of thinking for higher education, providing every
                                      degree-seeking student with an iPad. DWU’s technology
                                      initiative is much more than a device for each student. It
                                      incorporates a redesign of the curriculum, the learning
                                      environment, and gives students choices for learning.
                                      The technology initiative differs in that it is a student-
                                      centric use of technology. Digital DWU is as much about
                                      integrating technology as it is about teaching students
                                      to think creatively and ethically about technology. “High
                                      Point Networks brings a ton of value by discussing
                                      new technologies that keep us evolving as a
                                      business education institute,” said Chad Harvey,
                                      Director of Information Technology at DWU.

                                      Harvey knew that such an undertaking would require

                                      access. That’s why he chose to partner with High
