SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Augustana University's president says the Sioux Falls school is looking into a move to NCAA Division I athletics.

The Yankton Daily Press & Dakotan reports that university president Stephanie Herseth Sandlin says the possible move from Division II to Division I is part of a long-term planning process and won't be an athletics-only decision. She says athletics can help Augustana expand opportunities and partnerships for the school and its students.
