Through the past few months, the North Dakota University System has been hard at work in many areas. Our 11 public colleges and universities worked diligently to prepare campuses and programs of study, and are now well into learning mode.
I have been listening to the many perspectives of lawmakers, business leaders, faculty, staff and students to help shape the future goals of this system, and greatly appreciate your thoughts and ideas.
Thank you all for your hard work and dedicated study. Please take a few moments to watch my most recent video message, where I discuss my recent campus tours, studies we are undertaking to make the system more efficient, a new initiative called Bakken U, and ways that we can help enhance the intellectual development of our students.
