The State Board of Higher Education launched its new strategic plan for the system – The NDUS Edge – and wants to share this bold, new direction with North Dakota students! Join the conversation and take advantage of this unique opportunity to speak with the chancellor of the North Dakota University System and the State Board. Please encourage your fellow students to participate. We will start the conversation, then turn the tables and give you, the students, an opportunity to ask us questions!


What? #StudentSpk Twitter Chat hosted by @NDUnivSystem

When? Tuesday, Oct. 21 from 4 p.m. – 5 p.m. CDT

Why? The North Dakota University System serves to educate its students. In order for the State Board to govern the system and help support students, they need to know what students are thinking. That’s why we need to hear from you!
