Hello Jackrabbits!

I enthusiastically look forward to supporting the holistic needs of our students on a roadmap to success while working at a premiere university. South Dakota State University has made a commitment to embrace the land-grant mission by providing educational access for all. Through a team approach with the Student Success NETwork, we will unite with an intentional purpose of individually guiding students toward attaining a college degree. The Wintrode Student Success and Opportunity Center welcomes students to visit and utilize various resources and success strategies. I invite administration, advisors, staff and students to share personal insight and guide our team in fostering an inclusive environment of academic excellence.
