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.
