Global Council

North Dakota State University has seen enormous growth and achievement in the past decade in student enrollment, academic excellence, co-curricular programming, research initiatives, and collaboration with local, regional, national and international institutions of higher learning and businesses. As we move into the next decade, NDSU is poised to become one of the nation’s preeminent land-grant research universities. Internationalization is an important component of this trajectory, and it is critical that our institution develops a strategic, comprehensive, institutional level integrated approach to internationalization that encompasses teaching, research and service.  The creation of a Global Council, comprised of faculty, staff, students and community members, will bring key stakeholders with institutional and community knowledge together to review the current state of internationalization, develop a forward-thinking plan for comprehensive internationalization and begin the process of implementation and ongoing review.

The Global Council is comprised of a broad campus and community representation. Members include NDSU faculty, staff, students, and administrators, as well as local educational, political, and business leaders.
