Leaders from university campuses throughout North Dakota gathered to discuss collaboration efforts around energy education. The Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) hosted the event as part of its work as the newly designated State Energy Research Center of North Dakota (SERC).
Attendees discussed the energy industry’s contribution to the economy of North Dakota and how each campus incorporates energy and environmental education into its curricula. The group, consisting of representatives from Minot State University, the University of Jamestown, Dickinson State University, the University of North Dakota, Nueta Hidatsa Sahnish College, Williston State College, Valley City State University, and North Dakota State University, discussed current and future needs in regard to energy education and what could be accomplished through collaboration and SERC funding.
The group will continue discussions and plan projects to enhance energy education in North Dakota. For more information, contact Tom Erickson.
