The mission of Dakota State University's Student Success Center remains unchanged: to develop a comprehensive system of resources - offering access to a full continuum of student based services - aimed at reducing the negative and harmful effects that alcohol and other drug use have on student persistence, retention and academic success.

Inquiries regarding our service offerings, confidential consultations about specific issues, or group presentations covering a wide range of subject matters are welcome.

The U.S. Department of Education Drug-Free Schools and Campuses Regulations require Dakota State University to publish a Biennial Review every two years. The Biennial Review offers a detailed assessment of student alcohol and other drug violations during the period, as well as the relative effectiveness of institutional program interventions designed to address them.
