(Sioux Falls, SD) — A trio of South Dakota college and university leaders is speaking out about “disruptive forces” affecting higher education.

Perry spoke about this issue at a Downtown Sioux Falls Rotary meeting yesterday, along with Southeast Technical College President Bob Griggs, and South Dakota State University President Barry Dunn. Griggs noted the pandemic, the cost of higher education, and growth and accessibility as the main issues. Dunn added that the funding model for dual credit classes is disruptive.
