Sharon Lust School of Education

The Sharon Lust School of Education has a long and rich history in teacher education and has also been committed to developing other professionals who care deeply about serving children, youth, and/or adults in a variety of capacities. 

Our track record for offering excellent professional programs that are grounded in the liberal arts, engaging in impactful research- particularly in the area of positive youth development, as well as developing programs that are both responsive and innovative is impressive. One example of this is the Augie Access program, the only Post-Secondary Comprehensive Transition Program in the state of South Dakota. Augie Access has enabled students with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities to attend college.
