SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The University of Sioux Falls has named a new president after outgoing President Mark Benedetto announced his retirement plans last spring.

Brett Bradfield was named the 23rd president of the Christian and liberal arts university on Tuesday. Bradfield started at USF as director of graduate programs in 2000, then became vice president for professional studies in 2003 and provost and vice president of public academic affairs in 2007. His appointment takes effect Feb. 6.

Bradfield says he is prepared to tackle the challenges facing USF ranging from attracting students to fostering workforce development in Sioux Falls.

The Argus Leader (http://argusne.ws/2jSha1h ) reports Bradfield will oversee USF’s adoption of programs that help immigrants and refugees who in the past went to Kilian Community College before it closed last spring.

This story has been corrected to correct that Benedetto is university’s outgoing president instead of former president.
