BISMARCK, N.D. - The last leg of Chancellor Mark R. Hagerott's extensive listening tour continued Wednesday when he headed out to hear more from campus leaders and students.
Hagerott first visited Valley City State University, where he met with President Tisa Mason and other campus representatives.
"It was a privilege to have Chancellor Hagerott on campus Wednesday," said Mason. "We pride ourselves on our personable environment-we do education on a human scale-and having the chancellor get firsthand feedback from our students, faculty and staff, and see all that's happening in Valley City was a great opportunity for all."
On Thursday, Hagerott visited North Dakota State College of Science for discussions with Dr. John Richman, staff and students. While there, he was also able to participate in the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the re-dedication of the Old Main. Later that day he visited North Dakota State University to hear from President Dean Bresciani on a number of topics including campus projects.
Hagerott said the tours so far had been positively informative and was looking forward to seeing the rest of the campuses.
"It's great to see the individual character and atmosphere of each of our colleges and universities," Hagerott said. "My visits with presidents, students and faculty have been both pleasant and full of the type of local perspectives I was looking forward to hearing."
The campus tours will take him to the University of North Dakota, Lake Region State College, Dakota College at Bottineau and Minot State University all next week. Following that, he will close out the tour with a visit to Mayville State University. Hagerott had previously visited the campuses of Williston State College, Dickinson State University and Bismarck State College.
