During North Dakota State College of Science’s recent presentation to the House Education and Environment Appropriations Committee of the North Dakota Legislature, the College recommended funding to better meet the workforce shortage in the state of North Dakota.

To address the state’s workforce needs, President John Richman outlined the following ideas:

  • Offer competitive salaries and benefits to attract and retain qualified faculty and staff
  • Adjust the funding formula to better fund two-year colleges
  • Prioritize funding to address deferred maintenance issues
  • Funding to assist students with college affordability
