barry_dunn_sdsuPaulsen had the honor of attending the inauguration of Barry H. Dunn as the 20th president of South Dakota State University (SDSU).

The outdoor ceremony was held on campus, with hundreds of friends, family, colleagues, political leaders and academic dignitaries in attendance.

During his inauguration address, Dunn spoke of the importance of the university being prepared to deal with a much more diverse South Dakota.

“South Dakota State University is a public university whose work clearly benefits its graduates,” said President Dunn.

“But it also is a comprehensive university, whose research and outreach spurs economic development and prosperity for all sectors of our state’s and region’s economy, as well as strengthening our community and social structures.”

Paulsen worked closely with Dr. Dunn when he was dean of agriculture and biological sciences and headed SDSU Extension. Now, we look forward to working with President Dunn in the future to help strengthen and expand SDSU’s commitment to serving South Dakota.
