Dakota State University has invested in the Forward Sioux Falls 2026 campaign.
Forward Sioux Falls, a joint venture of the Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce and Sioux Falls Development Foundation, convenes investors from both the private and public sectors with an objective to expand the economy and enhance the quality of life in Sioux Falls and the surrounding region.
As DSU expands its reach through partnerships like the CyberHealth Alliance with Sanford Health in the Sioux Falls region, supporting Forward Sioux Falls is another way for Dakota State to invest in the future of South Dakota.
The 2026 Forward Sioux Falls campaign focuses on five strategic initiatives – talent development, business retention and attraction, innovation, advocacy, and program management.
Jon Schemmel, Vice President for Institutional Advancement and CEO of the DSU Foundation and Alumni Association, said that the university believes that DSU will be a big part of the growth of Sioux Falls in the future.
