“Listen and Learn” tour

September 3, 2015

Chancellor Mark Hagerott continued his listening tours of the state in August, with multiple site visits in communities throughout North Dakota. From these visits, Hagerott listed three key takeaways: They want more graduates to fill open positions, want graduates to stay in the state, and they want the system to be more nimble to respond to business needs.
