Board of Regents leader to step down later this year

March 2, 2023

The South Dakota Board of Regents this week announced the resignation of its executive director and CEO.

Dr. Brian Maher announced his resignation effective at the end of his current contract, which runs through June 2023.

The past few years have been a wonderful complement to a career in education," said Maher. "Beginning my professional life as first an educator, then a K12 administrator, and now as the Executive Director for South Dakota's public university system, I feel especially fulfilled."

Nathan Lukkes will succeed Maher as the next Executive Director and CEO for the Board of Regents.
