School Notes:

Founded in 1914, Dunwoody is a technical institution of higher education teaching men and women through hands-on learning. Dunwoody offers an intense, structured approach to education that facilitates individual learning and development. Programs are job-oriented and the learning environment fosters the qualities employers seek: productivity, self-discipline, confidence, teamwork, a positive attitude toward productivity, and an appreciation for a job well done. The integration of the Arts and Sciences is a key component of each program. Dunwoody is committed to excellence in education and believes skill and technical competence must be balanced with a broad academic education to enhance each graduate's success and facilitate life-long learning. Life-long learning skills that go beyond the technical aspects of an occupation are learned in course work that imparts the knowledge, concepts, and attitudes needed to live in a diverse society. Quality education requires personal attention, a primary emphasis at Dunwoody. With a small class size, instructors have time to get to know their students and provide individual attention. The relatively small size of the full-time student body provides opportunities for students to be personally involved in their school and encourages them to get to know their classmates. In addition, hands-on classroom/laboratory experiences and both individual and group projects give our students the quality foundation that employers demand. Dunwoody's close proximity to industry is a distinct advantage for field trips, part-time jobs, and placement after graduation. Industry representatives for seminars, demonstrations, and industry shows are available within minutes of the school. Nearby are lakes, parks, professional sports, theater, music, hunting, fishing, boating, skiing, fine residential areas, and a mix of friendly, hospitable people. The Dunwoody buildings have a gross area in excess of 300,000 square feet devoted to the educational programs and administrative, recreational and support services. Shops and laboratories are furnished with tools and equipment typical of the industries employing Dunwoody graduates. Dunwoody is accredited by The Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association.

As a result, students are taking longer than ever to obtain their degree, if they obtain one at all.
