University of Sioux Falls Center for Professional Development

The University of Sioux Falls (USF) in South Dakota provides professional development and professional continuing education options to adult learners and local businesses and organizations.

Both online and on USF’s campus in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, you can take part in a Christian community of adult students, all of them working hard in a variety of fields seeking professional development and continuing education credits for their careers.

Many need to meet required continuing education credits and continuing education classes. Others take professional continuing education for personal growth. Either way, USF’s professional development students want the best continuing education programs so that they can be top in their careers and their best in daily life. It’s all part of USF’s mission as a Christian university with a strong foundation in the liberal arts.

USF Center for Professional Development Programs

Professional development and continuing education options from USF fall into three categories:

  • K-12 Professional Development, for teachers and education professionals to gain new skills and meet requirements for K-12 continuing education credits.
  • Contract Training, where USF faculty experts partner with businesses and other organizations to create and deliver professional development programs that meet specific needs for training, development and continuing education for that organization’s staff.
  • Seminars and Certificates, where you can attend adult education seminars targeting hot topics in professional development or take part in professional continuing education that results in earning a professional continuing education certificate.

Over 250 different course offerings are available each semester (fall, spring and summer) through USF’s Center for Professional Development.
