A Message from the President

Mark Benedetto

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 freshmen 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.

That's why I promise you that the University of Sioux Falls is a place...Where You Become, Who You Become.

For USF,

Mark Benedetto

Since 1883, the vision of strong leaders has sustained the University of Sioux Falls to hold steadfast to its mission to foster academic excellence and the development of mature Christian persons for service to God and humankind in the world. From the Board of Trustees and Foundation Board to the President, his Cabinet and faculty and staff, USF is a community focused on optimizing student outcomes and experiences, all while developing "the whole person" and integrating faith into learning experiences.
