District 17 Lawmakers Host Board of Regents at Vermillion
The meeting begins at 7 p.m. at the Fire Station, located at 820 N. Dakota St. in Vermillion; please park west of the building. Representatives of the South Dakota Board of Regents, its staff, and public university presidents will be on hand to visit with area residents. The public is invited to attend.
"As a public university system, we know that job-one is to deliver the kind of quality higher education that produces a competitive workforce and results in a stronger South Dakota economy," said Regents President Kathryn Johnson. "Through the continual re-evaluation of what we deliver at the public universities, and by developing new programs to meet new needs, we position ourselves to quickly respond to these challenges. We encourage local residents to join us for an informal conversation about the role higher education plays in meeting South Dakota’s needs."
Rep. Tom Jones, Rep. Jamie Boomgarden, and Sen. Eldon Nygaard, who extended the invitation to meet in Vermillion, said the ideas exchanged at this meeting will help South Dakota’s public higher education system better plan for the future.
