The South Dakota Board of Regents recognized student organizations from Dakota State University for excellence in academic, community, and organizational work during its meeting in Madison this week.
Receiving the Regents’ Award for Academic Excellence is the Phi Beta Lambda (or PBL) Business Club. PBL brings business and education interests together to create innovative leadership and career development programs. The club encourages participation in state and national PBL leadership conferences, where members participate in competitive events that put classroom lessons into practice.
The Regents’ Community Service Award went to The Alliance, a DSU group that promotes a welcoming and inclusive environment for all students, faculty, staff, and community. Members are engaged in building a visible support and ally network on campus and throughout the local community.
Receiving the Regents’ Award for Organizational Leadership is DSU’s CybHER group, which is a network of support and resources for women who aspire to work in the technology industry. Last year, more than two-thousand students were impacted through the outreach events. The group’s meetings are dedicated to learning new technologies and brainstorming individual projects.
