Maher stepping down from SD Board of Regents

PIERRE, S.D.–South Dakota Board of Regents Executive Director and CEO Dr. Brian Maher (pictured) will resign at the end of his current contract, which runs through June of this year.

Nathan Lukkes will succeed Maher.

Board President Pam Roberts says Maher’s leadership over the past three years truly impacted higher education in South Dakota. She says the Board tasked him with focusing on accessibility, affordability and retention for the state’s public universities– and he delivered.

Maher served previously as superintendent of the Sioux Falls Public School system before joining the Board of Regents.
