Thank You From South Dakota Mines Leadership Team

RAPID CITY, SD (Dec. 21, 2020) — South Dakota Mines President Jim Rankin and his  leadership team offer a heartfelt thanks to staff and faculty for their dedication and perseverance during the COVID-19 pandemic.


The campus community has worked diligently in the past year to ensure that our students can continue to receive a world-class Hardrocker education. It hasn’t been easy. Whether it was putting in extra hours adapting in-person classes to online platforms or ramping up cleaning schedules in classrooms and dorms, every person and every department has played a role in making this past year successful.


Thank you!


Now is the time to enjoy the holiday season and recharge. We return in the spring with renewed energy and a continued commitment to succeed. Enjoy this video from campus administration and once again, thanks. https://youtu.be/FbFV1nsBNxE
