Source: americantowns.com

Governor Doug Burgum on Dec 21st announced the members of a task force that will evaluate the governance structure for North Dakota’s higher education system and determine if improvement opportunities exist to better meet the state’s educational and workforce needs for the 21st century.

The 15-member Task Force for Higher Education Governance was created by executive order last month and consists of the governor as chair and 14 members appointed by the governor. Burgum appointed the members from a pool of more than 230 applicants.

Among the appointees is State Senator Brad Bekkedahl(’79), a dentist from Williston and finance commissioner on the Williston City Commission since 1996. Bekkedahl earned bachelor’s degrees from the University of Jamestown and University of Minnesota and a doctor of dental surgery degree from the University of Minnesota School of Dentistry.

The governor is working with Task Force members to schedule the group’s first meeting in January. Thereafter, the Task Force will meet monthly or at the call of the chair. The group will provide recommendations for the Legislature to consider during its 2019 session.
