BISMARCK, N.D. - In consultation with State Board of Higher Education President Jon Backes, I have authorized UND President Robert Kelley to approve continued licensing of Sioux and Fighting Sioux merchandise and to plan for the continued use of the nickname and logo by the 2011-12 UND athletic teams.

This authorization recognizes the need for the University of North Dakota to proceed with plans for the coming academic year, particularly in view of passage of HB 1263 by the North Dakota Legislature and the subsequent signing of the bill by Gov. Jack Dalrymple.

For more information about the impact of this authorization, contact Peter Johnson per the contact information above.
