Event Day: Voices from the Real World
The Board of Visitors was created to assist the College of Human Development and Education to expand enrollment in the College, to enhance opportunities for career success, to promote ongoing relationships within the College and to support Human Development and Education financially. To fulfill portions of this mission statement, the members of the College of Human Development and Education Board of Visitors sponsor and present a day in the classroom at NDSU. The Board members present in several classes and either speak on their practical experience and/or a topic that is relevant to the class. The Board also offers their time in meeting with faculty to discuss changes in the professional markets and thoughts on curriculum to support these changes. This year "Voices from the Real World" will be held on Monday, February 23, 2015.
