Academic and Career Services Center

Your Strengths. Our Vision.

Our Academic and Career Services Center is here to help you find and use your strengths, connect your talents with your educational goals and give you the clarity and focus you need to succeed well after you graduate from DWU.

We can also help you choose your major, find the tutoring you need, land an internship and more. The Academic and Career Services Center is located on second floor of the McGovern Library,  so be sure to check us out when you visit!

Choosing a Major

Choosing your major is one of the most important decisions you will make in your education. By selecting a combination of programs, you can truly design a path of learning that is entirely your own. The Academic and Career Services Center can help you explore your options and find the right fit for you.

Finding Your Strengths

At DWU, we believe that our greatest potential lies in our strengths. Find yours with the help of the Academic and Career Services Center and the Clifton StrengthsFinder personality inventory.


DWU provides peer tutoring to all DWU students at no cost.

We are also always looking for student tutors who are interested in building up their resumés and gaining real-world work experience with this great experience.

Internships and Part-time Jobs

The Academic and Career Services Center can help you find the internship or part-time job you need to get a rich learning experience and be successful in your future career. We partner with the South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation to provide the most extensive and up-to-date opportunities and job listings available.

Activity Fair

Our Academic and Career Services Center facilitates an annual DWU Welcome Fest, which introduces DWU students to all that the community of Mitchell has to offer. It also provides an opportunity for businesses to seek part-time employees and volunteers and is a valuable event for everyone who attends.

Help Finding A Job After Graduation

We have resources you can use to find a job after you graduate. The Academic and Career Service Center can help you build your resume and practice interview skills.
