Center for Talent Development

Your Strengths. Our Vision.

Our Center for Talent Development 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 Center for Talent Development is located in the Rollins Campus Center, so be sure to stop by and 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 Center for Talent Development 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 Center for Talent Development and the Clifton StrengthsFinder personality inventory.


Get free peer-to-peer tutoring and access to facilitated study groups.

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 Center for Talent Development 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 Center for Talent Development facilitates an annual DWU Community Plunge, 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 also have some resources you can use to find a job after you graduate!
