Pioneering spirit, transformative thinking

At Dakota State University, we nurture an environment that celebrates and rewards innovation. We're proud to be the catalyst for rewarding creativity and growth.

Research and Economic Development Affairs is dedicated to building the culture of research at DSU. Both students and faculty have the means and the opportunities to be agents of innovation in South Dakota. Programs like the Student and Faculty Research Initiative awards are a campus-wide catalyst for exploring new directions and germinating groundbreaking ideas. 

DSU undergraduate students have earned awards and recognition from NASA South Dakota Space Grant Consortium and the United States Environmental Protection Agency’s National Center for Environmental Research.

Goldwater Scholars

Our student researchers accomplish big things. We are proud to say that two of DSU’s science students, Hope Juntunen and Vaille Swanson, have received the Barry Goldwater Scholarship, in 2017 and 2018 respectively. This scholarship is the most prestigious and competitive undergraduate mathematics and science scholarship award in the United States.
