The Center for Talent Development is here to strengthen your experience at Dakota Wesleyan University, and offers various workshops, trainings and services to help. Whether you are looking for guidance on how to speak to professors or struggling in calculus, check out the events and services below to see how we can help.
These services are available free to all students, and aim to help students supplement their in-class instruction with out-of-class reinforcement and support. To this end, AAA provides free tutoring, workshops, coordinates study groups and provides study materials for students who show an active interest and need for them.

joining or starting a formal study group, please speak with your instructor
or contact the Center Talent Development.

a tutor or study group for your course, please contact the Center for
