Dr. Brett Bradfield | University of Sioux Falls
The University of Sioux Falls (USF) prides itself on providing students with transformational educational opportunities that prepare them for life, as well as a career, and that vision starts with USF President Dr. Brett Bradfield. In February 2017, Dr. Bradfield, a proven and innovative leader in Christian higher education and a familiar figure at the University of Sioux Falls, was selected to lead the University into the future. His dedication to putting students first and maintaining a rich tradition of Culture for Service that encourages students to give back to their communities, along with keeping education affordable, has allowed USF to continue to evolve its identity as a premier higher education institution in the region.
USF has over 90 academic program offerings, which include both undergraduate and graduate degrees, that span the spectrum from associate degrees to a Doctorate in Leadership. The institution’s current academic programs are continually being adapted and revised for relevance and new opportunities are created to stay at the forefront of change, keeping in mind how delivery formats are progressing to reach today’s learners where they are.
USF is also home to a Center for Workforce Development, through which the university has offered over 200 professional development opportunities, serving over 4,500 students pursuing both credit and noncredit-bearing experiences, leading to various credentialing. In alignment with the growing workforce needs in the region, the university has continued expansion of its already extensive adult learning footprint to serve people attempting to upskill or reskill within the current economy
“We look to serve all students no matter their educational path. We are proud of our students and know they take both an enhanced skillset and the university’s motto of Culture for Service out into the communities they serve. USF takes pride in its prominent role in serving educational needs and contributing to workforce development in our state and region.”
