Roundtable on Higher Education

First authorized by state legislation in 1999, the Roundtable on Higher Education is made up of North Dakota leaders from the public and private sectors. Recognizing that North Dakota's economic vitality is closely linked to its university system, the Roundtable on Higher Education defined a dual mission for the North Dakota University System:
To enhance the quality of life for all those we serve and the economic and social vitality of North Dakota through the discovery, sharing and application of knowledge.

Through the first roundtable process, members identified six cornerstones on which to build A North Dakota University System for the 21st Century.

The six cornerstones have remained constant and are as relevant today as when they were first adopted:
  • Economic Development Connection

  • Education Excellence

  • Flexible and Responsive System

  • Accessible System

  • Funding and Rewards

  • Sustaining the Vision
The current strategic plan includes the first five cornerstones; the entire plan focuses on sustaining the vision.
