Southern Wesleyan University Announces SWU Online

CENTRAL, S.C. – Due to its significant growth in online enrollment, Southern Wesleyan University has created a new division, SWU Online.

SWU Online will continue Southern Wesleyan University’s 30-year tradition of offering Christ-centered programs of study for adults in South Carolina, but will now expand its reach through increased online program offerings and online support systems in new markets.

“We are committed to the same high level of excellence, care and service in our online programs as in our on-campus programs,” says Dr. Tonya Strickland, provost and vice president for academic affairs, who noted that students who have traditionally been drawn to face-to-face evening classes are now choosing to enroll in online programs to further their educational and professional development.

To lead this division is a new vice provost for online learning, Dr. Lynn Brown-Bulloch, who has served at SWU as associate dean and director of graduate studies for the School of Business. She brings 25 years of experience in business and health care administration and is certified in Strategy Mapping and the Balanced Scorecard as well as Customer Experience Management. Brown-Bulloch has also served on the Board of Examiners for the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award.

“As we implement the new SWU Online experience, we’re looking forward to the increased potential for God to transform the lives of our students—both near and far,” Strickland said.

Southern Wesleyan University is a Christ-centered, student-focused, faith-filled community that offers inventive learning experiences. The university endeavors to prepare its students to be dedicated scholars and servant-leaders who impact the world for Christ. At the same time, it’s Southern Wesleyan’s desire to practice contagious generosity within the surrounding community. For details about degree programs, go online to swu.edu.
