On Aug. 16-18, President Robert and Marcia Kelley will lead more than 30 new faculty members, top administrators, and their guests on a three-day tour of North Dakota. This year’s tour—the 20th since the inaugural launch in 1990 by then-president Thomas Clifford—is the third for the Kelleys.
UND’s strategic plan champions the University’s role as a public service provider to the state and as a resource for helping North Dakota diversify its economy. In order to help North Dakota, it is important for UND’s new faculty and administrators to see and understand the state.
The tours alternate each year between southern and northern routes. This year’s tour of the southern half of the state will offer glimpses of the region’s geography, economy, culture, and heritage, and will offer participants an opportunity to learn about the challenges and opportunities that are shaping the state.
