The SDSU West River Research & Extension in Rapid City is the western front door to South Dakota State University and the College of Agriculture, Food and Environmental Sciences. It is here at the Center that academics, research, Extension, and professionalism come together to provide South Dakota, especially western South Dakota, with the agricultural resources and expertise that can breed personal, professional, and community success.
Center professionals with expertise in agronomy, animal and range science, leadership and community development, economics, horticulture, and 4-H/youth development serve the entire state, but also focus on meeting the needs of western South Dakota producers, communities, families, and youth. In collaboration with these audiences—and in collaboration with private non-profit and public organizations and agencies—research, programming, and services are developed and implemented to build on the assets and address the challenges of those being served.
