Higher Ed Center Cuts The Rope Today
The Rapid City Area Chamber of Commerce will welcome the Higher Education
Center — West River to Rapid City during a rope-cutting scheduled for 10:30

Education Center — West River.
The Higher Education Center - West River was established to provide a "one-stop
shop" for all West River area students considering enrolling in higher
educational programs at the undergraduate and graduate level. Some courses
and programs will be taught at the center.
The purpose of the Center is to provide a cooperative and collaborative effort
from the participating universities — Black Hills State, School of Mines,
University of South Dakota and South Dakota State — to meet the needs of
students — especially the large population base in western South Dakota.
The center is striving to be responsive to the needs of residents in the entire
West River region. One of the first tasks for the center will be assessing what
those needs are and formulating a plan to meet them. The Center plans to
conduct market research to find out what programs are needed and what needs
are currently not being met.
The Center will work as a clearinghouse to avoid duplicate coursework and
facilitate a plan to share professors for courses offered by separate universities.
The center's location near downtown Rapid City includes more than a dozen
offices and a large classroom and houses representatives from several
