Message from the Department Head

The Department of Teaching, Learning and Leadership offers a wide range of both undergraduate and graduate experiences that prepare graduates for a lifelong career as distinguished educators. These opportunities start by learning from enthusiastic faculty both in this department and across the campus of South Dakota State University. 

As you consider a journey that includes SDSU, please ask our faculty on the faculty pages any question that you might have. Our programs are continually growing and developing and even if you don’t initially find what you are looking for, be sure to contact one of our faculty. We hope to hear from you as you consider joining a program in this department and SDSU. 

Interim Department Head,

Jay Trenhaile
