Fuller Begins Final Year

Posted: Updated:

It was a celebration, and at the same time, the start of the end at Minot State University this morning.

This is the centennial year for Minot State -- and it is the final year Dr. David Fuller will serve as the president of the University.

This morning, staff and faculty gathered for the Convocation -- a chance to hear about what is planned for the big centennial year and to hear from Dr. Fuller.

Fuller took over at Minot State in 2004 and almost immediately set his sights on this year -- 2013 -- the centennial year for the University.

The lead up to it has not been all smooth sailing however.

The Mouse River flood proved tough for the school with a steep drop in enrollment recently requiring budget cuts...

That trend is beginning to reverse itself however, and Fuller thinks the school is headed back in the right direction of helping students.

(Dr. David Fuller - Minot State University) "We can't turn higher education into anything other than helping individuals succeed and I think that is the heart of Minot State. That is what we do and our services support that and our faculty do that and from my vantage point, that is what I am most proud of, our ability to help individuals succeed."

Students begin their arrival on campus at Minot State later this week with fall semester starting next week.
