SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — The University Center in Sioux Falls could go under the leadership of the University of South Dakota if approved by the Board of Regents.

The Argus Leader reports the center worked with its three main colleges — University of South Dakota, South Dakota State University and Dakota State University — to put forward the redesign expected to go before the Board of Regents at its next meeting.

University Center executive director Craig Johnson says the changes follow years of declining enrollment.

Tena Haraldson with the University of South Dakota says university centers were originally created to bring public university educations to populous areas. She says location doesn't matter as much with the advent of online classes.

Johnson says the center will keep its name for the time being.
