NDSU’s college deans are featured in a new photo display outside the President’s Office in Old Main.
President Dean L. Bresciani initiated the display of framed professional photos to highlight academics and the university’s academic leadership.
“I felt it was important to increase the visibility of the university’s academic leadership as we increasingly draw national and international recognition for being one of the top-tier research universities in the nation,” President Bresciani said. “It also reminds visitors that our focus and priority is on academics.”
