At BHSU, our goal is to transform lives. Find out the programs and projects we are working on and how you can help us achieve that goal. Be sure to visit our new online donation form or contact us if you are interested in helping us with any of the below programs and projects.

Academics

  • AACSB Accreditation
    Funds raised for the Annual Fund and the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business will be used to assist the College of Business and Natural Sciences in its candidacy status to provide programming support to complete Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) accreditation. Only 15 percent of business programs in the country and only one university in South Dakota hold this accreditation.
      
  • Professorships
    An endowed professorship carries special prestige for both the holder of the position and the individual whose name, through the gift of an endowment, is associated with the position in perpetuity. This endowment can provide financial salary enhancements and or be used for faculty development such as attending conferences.
     
  • Academic Scholarship Endowment
    Scholarship endowments will transform lives as well as leave a legacy of investing in human capital in perpetuity. Scholarships will not only attract quality students to BHSU, but will encourage greater academic performance.
