New University of North Dakota faculty and administrators will get a front-row seat on a tour of the state when they embark on the school’s 31st annual bus tour of North Dakota on Aug.14-16.
This year’s route will give the travelers, many of whom are new to the state, a chance to explore much of the northern portion of North Dakota, through or near communities such as Dunseith, Belcourt, Minot, Tioga, Watford City, Devils Lake, Grafton and Gilby.
UND Provost Eric Link and Vice President for Student Affairs Art Malloy will co-host this year’s bus tour, and will be joined by about 30 first or second-year UND faculty and administrators.
The three-day tour, free for participants and supported by the UND Alumni Association & Foundation, alternates between northern and southern routes of the state each year. It was introduced in 1990, when Tom Clifford was president of the University.
Throughout the tour, participants also get a chance to learn more about North Dakota agriculture, education, tourism, energy development, government and business from experts in the field, as well as learn more about each other.
During one of the stops this year, in Minot, the UND travelers are slated to have an early morning breakfast with UND high-achieving scholars and their parents at the Vardon Golf Course.
