Regents put USD in charge of University Center

SIOUX FALLS (AP) -- The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved the University of South Dakota to serve as lead institution at University Center-Sioux Falls.

SIOUX FALLS (AP) - The South Dakota Board of Regents has approved the University of South Dakota to serve as lead institution at University Center-Sioux Falls.

The regents say the center will continue its longstanding multi-institutional collaboration that will allow students to enroll in academic programs offered by any of the state universities.

But under the new structure, University Center will emphasize a new focus on two-year associate degree programs that provide in-demand workforce skills while leading to bachelor degree completion.

Regents Executive Director Mike Rush says bachelor- and graduate-degree programs will remain available at University Center-Sioux Falls, based on local needs and demand.

USD, SDSU, and DSU have historically shared operational responsibility for the off-campus center.
