The USF Alumni Association is a fantastic resource for alumni, or those hoping to get more involved with USF. It’s important for our graduates to feel connected to their alma mater, and the Alumni Association is here to help! We seek to

  • Increase the engagement of alumni and friends of this distinctly Christian University
  • Contribute to the excellence and advancement of USF by supporting the work of the Office of Institutional Advancement and Alumni Relations
  • Enhance and support the professional development and success of USF graduates
  • Foster a lifelong relationship with the University of Sioux Falls by providing opportunities for alumni and friends to engage and support USF through our motto, Culture for Service.

Each Alumni Association Board member is an active member of the Alumni Association and has the opportunity to serve two terms, with each term spanning three years. Board members serve as representatives for the USF alumni population and are responsible for being the voice for over 15,000 alumni across the country.
