Innovation Center Initiative

University leadership has made innovation a high priority in the most recent strategic plan and will fully implement an innovation initiative over the next five years. SD Mines' vision is to build a nationally recognized Innovation Enterprise. This campus-wide program would employ the talents and resources of faculty, staff, students, alumni, and our local, regional, and national community. The goal is to graduate broadly trained, innovative scientists and engineers who can work in teams to identify and solve the problems of tomorrow.

The Mines Annual Fund helps to achieve the University's mission. Gifts to the Mines Annual Fund will support the efforts of the Alumni Association, the Foundation and the Hardrock Club to provide exceptional program support. A gift to the Mines Annual Fund is an expression of your support to your alma mater and will make an immediate impact on programs and student success. Leave your legacy today!
