NDSU Employees Are Our Greatest Asset

At NDSU we believe in developing leaders across our University at every level. This is why we are offering a leadership program that aligns with the University’s mission and strategic plan to develop leaders. Participants of the program will gain stronger connections with fellow participants and the University community. Knowing this, NDSU defines professional development as each employee’s privilege to build discipline expertise, to enhance personal growth, to improve teaching abilities, and to contribute to organizational development. It is NDSU’s responsibility to provide options and each employee’s responsibility to invest in their development. There are several training/development opportunities that have taken place in the past and present at both the department and university level such as teambuilding, onboarding, and leadership sessions.
