MSU-DCB Connection to Remain

Posted: Updated:

The idea of ending a cooperative management agreement between Minot State University and Dakota College at Bottineau was abandoned today.

Meeting at Lake Region Community College in Devils Lake the State Board of Higher Education heard from the leaders if the two institutions.

Dr. David Fuller of MSU and Dr. Ken Grosz of DCB told board members of their efforts to gauge community interest in separating the two schools.

Fuller said meetings were held on both campuses and with people in both Bottineau and Minot.

He said, with few exceptions, people were happy with the current arrange where DCB is considered a part of MSU.

Grosz said his Bottineau meetings showed the same results.

<(Dr. Ken Grosz, Dakota College at Bottineau) "It's been a good relationship with great collaboration, students transfer to Minot State seamlessly, our community, college, faculty and students have virtually no enthusiasm to change the status quo."

(Dr. David Fuller, Minot State University) "Faulty, staff, students, and community members - it seemed quite obvious they didn't want this separation to occur.">>

As a result, chancellor Dr. Larry Skogen said the current arrangement between the two institutions would continue with only minor adjustments.
