Aberdeen-based Presentation College is closing its outreach campus on the Cheyenne River Indian Reservation.
The campus in Eagle Butte was created in 1980, when the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe asked the private Catholic school to develop a nursing program to address health care needs on the reservation. Of the 186 alumni of the campus, 170 were nursing students.
College President Margaret Huber says officials think the mission in Eagle Butte has been accomplished, and that there has been a decline in applications and enrollment over the past six years.
The campus will close in May. Students enrolled there will be able to finish their degrees. Nine are enrolled and five are anticipating a spring graduation.
