The South Dakota Board of Regents last month approved a plan for the Community College of Sioux Falls to become the University of South Dakota - Sioux Falls.
According to an announcement from the Board of Regents, the plan builds upon the University of South Dakota's (USD) strong presence in the Sioux Falls marketplace, where the campus serves as a local option for health sciences, business, and education.
Also in the announcement, the Regents said USD plans to relocate all nursing classes and a clinical skills lab from the Sanford USD Medical Center campus, creating a health science hub in the state's largest city.
The Master of Public Health and Master of Social Work programs will also be relocated to the new site, along with the Center for the Prevention of Child Maltreatment and the Center for Rural Health Improvement. USD's new Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia program will also be based out of the Sioux Falls campus and will begin accepting students in the spring of 2023.
