On July 1, 2021, history was made when Delaware State University acquired what was formerly Wesley College. The site was renamed DSU Downtown, and Dr. Stacy Downing was appointed the Chief Administrator. This location is home to the Office of Strategic Initiatives, also under the leadership of Dr. Downing, and the Wesley College of Health and Behavioral Sciences, whose Dean is Dr. Gwen Scott-Jones.
At Delaware State University, our students “enter to learn” and “go forth to serve.” We believe in community engagement and pride ourselves on our partnerships with local businesses, schools, ecumenical and community leaders, and political constituents. We look forward to cultivating and supporting the success of downtown Dover while providing engagement opportunities for the community at large, tangibly representing the University’s Core Values of diversity, community, integrity, scholarship, contemporary and outreach.
