Higher Education Task Force Meets Thursday

 

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – As it continues work on a report to be issued later this year, the task force studying operations of South Dakota public universities will meet Thursday in Sioux Falls.

 

The Senate Bill 55 Task Force will meet at Community College for Sioux Falls, the fourth meeting of the 20-member task force. Most of the day’s agenda is set aside for subcommittee work on detailed tasks involving academics, administration, and infrastructure topics.

 

The task force was created after a 2020 law directed a study of the operations and functions of higher education institutions governed by the South Dakota Board of Regents. Findings will be sent to the Legislature and Gov. Kristi Noem no later than Nov. 15.

 

The Senate Bill 55 Task Force convenes Thursday, May 13, at 8:30 a.m. (CDT) and will immediately dissolve into subcommittee work. Subcommittees will report out to the full task force at about 2:20 p.m. The public may access a livestream link through the task force agenda.
