Human Development and Education

Human Development and Education Community began in the fall 2015 semester and is open to first-year students with majors offered throughout this college. The College of Human Development and Education provides opportunities and events throughout the year focused on student success. Students in this community will be exposed to a variety of opportunities to enhance their academic work and develop staff and student networks to assist throughout their academic career. The HDE Community is located in the high rise complex.

“HDE is one of the colleges at NDSU that focuses on individual interaction and a lifelong connection. During just my first semester and a half at NDSU, I have met so many faculty and staff, who are all so caring and supportive with everything I do. They are always ready to lend a helping hand.” Hayley, Family and Consumer Sciences Education
