DSU names first Dean of the Governor’s Cyber Academy

The first ever Dean of the Governor’s Cyber Academy at Dakota State University in Madison has been named.  Dr. Fenecia Homan will begin in the position on January 5th.

The Academy is part of the cyber-research initiative at Dakota State, which was announced earlier this year. 

This dual-credit program will offer South Dakota high school students the opportunity to take 30 credits while in high school. Several courses will be in general education, but most will be focused on computer and cyber sciences. This initiative will help Dakota State expand and accelerate the talent pipeline into its nationally recognized cyber programs.

The Governor’s Cyber Academy is an expansion of DSU’s Cyber Academy offered in several school districts over the past few years. The Academy will begin its statewide rollout in Fall 2023.

Homan has experience in K-12 as a middle and high school math teacher, and has been with Southeast Technical College since 2012, most recently serving as Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness.
