Gov. Jack Dalrymple named NDSU student Sydney Hull as the State Board of Higher Education’s student representative June 19. Hull, who is from Fargo, will begin his one-year term July 1.
Hull is majoring in history and political science and was elected as an off-campus student senator, overseeing the student activity fees at NDSU. In addition to being a full-time student and his involvement in student government activities, Hull is a web developer and administrative assistant at K&K Metal Recycling in Fargo.
“I am ecstatic to represent the approximately 48,000 students and 11 institutions of the North Dakota University System,” Hull said. “I have some big shoes to fill, but I’m going to do my best to hit the ground running.”
The nine-member State Board of Higher Education is the policy-setting body for the North Dakota University System. The board consists of seven citizen members who are appointed to serve four-year terms, one student appointed by the governor for a one-year term and one faculty adviser selected by the Council of College Faculties. The student member is appointed from a list advanced to the governor by the North Dakota Student Association.
NDSU is recognized as one of the nation's top 108 public and private universities by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
