We are delighted you decided to visit our site. Whether you are a prospective student considering applying to NDSU, incoming student, interested in completing your degree, or a current student seeking assistance, this site will provide you with information about our use of innovative pedagogical practices and integration of research with teaching and teaching with research. You will be inspired by CSM students, faculty, staff and stakeholders making positive changes in our world.  NDSU students are our future scholars, professionals, innovators, and leaders. That means YOU!

CSM offers a large selection of undergraduate and graduate programs, including biological sciences, chemistry and biochemistry, coatings and polymeric materials, geosciences, mathematics, physics, psychology and statistics. Our outstanding faculty members are recognized nationally and internationally for their teaching, research, and service. Through their highly collaborative work, they consistently publish in prestigious journals and secure grants and contracts to support their active research programs. Our students work closely with the faculty in the classroom, laboratory, and in the field, and receive an unmatched level of personal attention that is one of our main points of pride.

CSM is committed to excellence in teaching that is designed to prepare students to become global citizen leaders in the STEM fields as well as being critical thinkers. We aspire to serve as a national model for universities in the integration of teaching and research and discipline-based education research for diverse students.
