The North Dakota University System operates as the public trust. To fulfill that trust, we must have a clear idea of what we intend to accomplish.
And what we intend to accomplish is to serve this state by better preparing our young people for an ever-changing, ever-challenging future.
That goal is the driving force behind the Pathways to Student Success plan.
The truth is, our colleges and universities in North Dakota are accomplishing far less than they could and should be. We’ve been operating less as an integrated system and more as a series of related but not necessarily integrated pieces.
