Join our team.  Make an Impact.

South Dakota State University is the state’s largest university—and it’s still growing. As a land-grant University, SDSU has always served South Dakota by offering quality public higher education to all who strive for greatness. Today, SDSU’s strong academic curriculums, outstanding faculty, and ample research opportunities make it a sought-after university by students around the globe.

The South Dakota State University Foundation directly impacts SDSU by generating private donor support. We help fund several of SDSU’s initiatives, including student scholarships and capital projects. As the University and its needs grow, so does the Foundation.

When you work for the Foundation, you’re working for a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that cares about their employees and those they serve. Build meaningful relationships with our donors and University leadership, and make a lasting impact on the future of SDSU and its students.

"Everyday, I am surrounded by people who are passionate about SDSU and want to make a difference.  We get the opportunity to be a part of something bigger than ourselves and to daily see the impact right outside our front door."

> Arian Bunde, Director of Leadership Initiatives
