Dear Students and Parents,

I am delighted to welcome you to Lower Brule Community College where our heritage, mission, and educational values grew out of the virtues of the Oceti Sakowin (Seven Council Fires): Respect, Honesty, Compassion, Generosity, Prayer, Humility, and Wisdom.


Our students, faculty, and staff are dedicated to a sense of community, honoring of our rich cultural tradition and committed to education rooted in academic quality, career relevance, and personal empowerment.


It is our goal to have our students be prepared to succeed in their personal and professional lives and serve as positive role models for future generations!
