2021 Celebration of Faculty Excellence
Once a year the faculty of South Dakota State University come together to celebrate and recognize successes through the Celebration of Faculty Excellence event.
The 2021 event will be held in a hybrid model on Thursday, March 25th, 2021. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, the 2021 event will look different. The committee is very committed celebrating the outstanding work of SDSU's Faculty and will work diligently execute a safe event.
