CLIMBING NEW PEAKS

Since its early days as a center for teacher training in the 1880s, Black Hills State University has overcome challenges and ascended to new heights. Now a comprehensive institution offering more than 70 degree programs across the liberal arts and sciences, education, and business, BHSU is again poised to climb new peaks. We strive to engage and support new generations of students, to prepare our graduates to make a difference in the world through rich academic experiences, to hire and retain outstanding, thriving employees, and to convey our compelling stories through thoughtful, effective outreach. With a deep respect for its origins and with an ever-greater commitment to meeting the economic and civic demands of the 21st century, the BHSU community has created this new strategic plan.
