SD Board Of Regents Talks Challenges, Opportunities After Recent Criticism

(Pierre, SD) — Lawmakers are working with the South Dakota Board of Regents to tackle challenges and present opportunities after recent criticism towards the board. Meetings were held for two days at Dakota State university this week. Representatives Will Mortenson from Pierre and Tony Venhuizen from Sioux Falls talked with the regents about college affordability, access to education, developing the workforce and keeping political activism out of college education. Regent Tim Rave says political activism isn’t seeping into South Dakota’s universities after Governor Kristi Noem speaking out and launching a whistleblower hotline. He also added university classrooms are “laboratories for discussion” and there should be vigorous, respectful debates about different topics and ideas.
