Our Mission

We help students, both past and present, succeed and thrive. When students graduate from Black Hills State, they leave with more than just a framed diploma. They take away the friendships, fun times, crazy times, hard times, inspirations, opportunities and challenges they encountered throughout their university career.

The University Advancement team consists of three branches: the Alumni Association, the BHSU Foundation and the Yellow Jacket Foundation. From helping connect donors and deserving students with scholarships to coordinating alumni events at our Homecoming Swarm Days for both students and alumni to enjoy, we are here to make strong ties that will benefit you.
