20 Mar SBHE/NDUS Closely Coordinating Response Among Campuses
The 11 institutions of the North Dakota University System are closely coordinating coronavirus issues with the State Board of Higher Education and the NDUS System Office. During the past month, campuses have continually adapted and adjusted to this unprecedented and constantly changing environment.
Higher Education leadership from across the state has been meeting to discuss these and other issues by teleconference on a frequent basis right up to and including today. Presidents have been meeting with faculty and staff on all the campuses to tackle this challenging situation.
Currently, all institutions are scheduled to resume classes next week after this week’s previously scheduled spring break. All of the campuses have moved selected courses to some kind of alternative delivery formats, some until the end of the semester, and some campuses are still looking at final decisions moving forward.

As this remains a fluid situation, the Presidents have been given the autonomy to make decisions appropriate for their institution. Campuses are also turning their attention to issues like commencement options at the completion of the semester.
“Our priority in North Dakota is the health, safety, and well-being of our people” Chancellor Mark Hagerott said. “Our Presidents, faculty, and staff all get that, and I applaud the resiliency of the campuses and the versatility of campus leadership. As this situation continues to develop, just know that campuses across the state are in capable hands.”
