Dakota College at Bottineau Legislative Priorities

January 28, 2015

The preeminent budget priority for Dakota College at Bottineau is to realize the executive recommendation of providing 4 percent salary adjustments and meeting the cost increases for the health insurance plan. In an increasingly difficult environment in which to recruit qualified faculty and staff, it’s very important for the college to get closer to market salary ranges.

Also a priority is the funding in the executive budget for upgrading the Nelson Science Center to resolve the facility’s life safety issues. Another significant and critical priority for DCB is funding to increase campus safety and security with improvements such as 24/7 security personnel, key card access and door lock systems, and additional security cameras.
