SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The University of Sioux Falls, a private school in South Dakota's largest city, is looking for a corporate partner.

President Mark Benedetto tells the Argus Leader that the company's logo would be on the school's stationery, on a marquee and on the athletic stadium.

He says the relationship also would include professional services, and a corporate partner's employees could use USF facilities such as its gym and weight training center and get sports tickets as if they were students.

Benedetto says such a partnership is rare in higher education.

He says institutions that are going to thrive in challenging economic conditions have to be thinking outside the box.
