The State Board of Higher Education is creating a new strategic plan for the system and wants to know what students from North Dakota colleges and universities think! Get your voice heard during this unique opportunity to speak to the governing board of the North Dakota University System, and encourage your fellow students to participate. Topics will include balance between work and school, financial aid, Measure 3 and more.


What? #StudentSpk Twitter Chat hosted by @NDUnivSystem

When? Thursday, June 19 from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. CDT

Why? In order to create the best strategic plan possible, it must be informed by all stakeholders including business and community leaders, faculty/staff and, of course, the student body.  That’s why we need to hear from you!

How do I participate? All you need to participate in the #StudentSpk Twitter Chat is a free twitter account. You can go to to sign up if you don’t already have an account. Once you have an account, follow these simple steps:
