Twin Cities university to start classes in Sioux Falls

By Jodi Schwan

The University of Northwestern – St. Paul is starting construction of a building that will expand its presence in Sioux Falls.

The university will share the 6,000-square-foot space at 6300 S. Tallgrass Ave. with Life 96.5 FM KNWC, which it also owns.

The building will include new studios for the radio station, offices for the station and university, and classrooms that will allow the university to provide distance and continuing education classes.

University of Northwestern describes itself as a Christ-centered liberal arts school located in the heart of the Twin Cities. Evangelist Billy Graham, its second president, helped the school start a Christian radio station in 1949. As stations were added, one went on the air in Sioux Falls in 1961.

KNWC’s mission is “to lead people to Christ and nurture believers in their spiritual growth through Christ-centered media.”

The university is planning to launch three Sioux Falls cohort-based programs in the fall of 2018, including an MBA, a master’s degree in organizational leadership and a bachelor’s degree in business management. They will be accelerated programs geared toward professionals with a mix of in-person and online education.

The building is expected to be done in the summer.
