Board of Regents looking to bring more students to their universities

PIERRE, S.D.(WNAX)- The South Dakota Board of Regents has begun a new marketing campaign, called “Learning Drives Us Forward”. It’s designed to raise awareness of the six universities and drive enrollment upward.

Regents Executive Director Brian Maher says they can see good results with a small change.

Maher says they are open to all types of potential students.

Maher says growing economic pressures may also influence the number of students turning to the universities.

Total enrollment at the six campuses has faded to just over thirty-three thousand four hundred last fall after peaking at over thirty six thousand six hundred in the fall of 2017.
