Mark Benedetto

A Message from the President

My wife, Gail, and I are humbled to serve at the University of Sioux Falls, a place we've called home for 18 years. Throughout my tenure as President, I've been witness to several transformations at USF.

None, however, reflect the University's mission better than new students who grow into purpose-driven graduates who reflect honor upon their alma mater by their service to church, humankind and profession.

At USF, you'll earn more than a degree. You'll gain experiences that will transform your life. While our students list the Christian community, dynamic professors and premier career opportunities as top benefits, it's who they become that alumni value most.

For USF,

Mark Benedetto
