Most colleges are making efforts to increase the diversity of their student body. One look at the populations of South Dakota's state institutions shows a pretty glaring discrepancy in college enrollment for one of the state's largest demographics. South Dakota State University is working to change that with its campus-wide Wokini Initiative. SDPB's Jackie Hendry is here for the first in a series of conversations about that effort.
