The University of North Dakota (UND) is a public university in Grand Forks, North Dakota, USA. Established by the Dakota Territorial Assembly in 1883, six years before the establishment of the state of North Dakota, UND is the oldest and largest university in the state and enrolls over 14,000 students. [4][4][5] UND was founded as a university with a strong liberal arts foundation.[5] Today, UND also offers a variety of professional and specialized programs, including the only schools of law and medicine in the state.[5] UND is also known for its School of Aerospace Sciences which trains airplane pilots from around the world.[5] UND has also been named a space grant institution.[6]

Roughly half of the student body is from North Dakota with the remainder coming from around the nation and the world.[5] UND's economic impact on the state and region is more than $1 billion a year and it is the second largest employer in the state of North Dakota, after the Air Force.[7] Recently, UND has put an emphasis on research and currently specializes in research involving health sciences, nutrition, energy and environmental protection, aerospace, and engineering.[5] Several research institutions are located on the UND campus including the Energy and Environmental Research Center, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and the USDA Human Nutrition Research Center.[5][8]

The UND athletic teams are called the Fighting Sioux. The men's ice hockey team, which plays in the Ralph Engelstad Arena, has won seven national championships. The Fighting Sioux ice hockey teams compete at the Division I level and as of 2008, all teams are now at the Division I level.[5]

History

President's Mansion

Founding

UND was founded in 1883, six years before North Dakota became a state.[9] Grand Forks native George H. Walsh submitted a bill to the Territorial Legislature of Dakota Territory that called for the new state of North Dakota's university to be located in Grand Forks.[9] The university was viewed by many as the premier state institution to be given to a community; even more so than the state capitol.[9]

The first classes were held on September 8, 1884. The first building at UND, Old Main, housed all classrooms, offices, dorm rooms, and a library.[10] In the 1880s, UND consisted of only a few acres of property surrounded by farms and fields.[10] At this time, the campus was nearly two miles west of the city of Grand Forks. Students living off campus had to take a train or a horse and carriage bus, dubbed the "Black Maria", from downtown to the campus.[11]

20th century

Early 20th century campus scenes

Gradually, more buildings were constructed on campus and a trolley system was built to connect the growing university to downtown Grand Forks. However, there were several major interruptions in the life of the university. In 1918, UND was the hardest-hit single institution in the country by the flu epidemic which killed 1,400 people in North Dakota alone.[12] Later that year, classes were suspended so the campus could become an army base for soldiers during World War I.[12] During the Great Depression, UND provided free housing to students willing to do manual labor on campus.[13] "Camp Depression," as it was called, consisted of railroad cabooses that housed eight male students each.[13] "Camp Depression" students did not get regular meals from the cafeteria and had to be satisfied with only free leftovers. However, a number of Grand Forks citizens often opened their homes and kitchen tables to many of these young men.[13]

After World War II, enrollment quickly grew to more than 3,000.[14] A large amount of housing had to be built on campus as well as several new academic buildings.[14] The 1950s saw the rise of the Fighting Sioux hockey tradition.[15] In the 1960s and 1970s, many student protests occurred at UND.[16] The largest occurred in May 1970 when over 1,500 students gathered to protest the Kent State shootings.[16] In 1975, enrollment swelled to a record 8,500. The 1970s also saw the establishment of the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences at UND. The 1980s and 1990s were another period of growth for UND.[17] However, the devastating 1997 Red River Flood inundated numerous buildings on campus and forced the cancellation of the remainder of the school year.[18]

21st century

The start of the 21st century was marked by the opening of two major athletic venues for UND athletics.[19] The Ralph Engelstad Arena which is used for hockey and the Alerus Center which is used for football both opened in 2001. Millions of dollars worth of construction and renovation projects have dotted the campus landscape in recent years. As part of a plan to improve student facilities on campus, UND has recently constructed a Wellness Center, a parking garage, and a new apartment-style housing complex. Today, issues facing UND include a move of its entire athletic program to Division I,[20] ongoing discussions regarding the Fighting Sioux nickname,[21] the fact that UND is located in a state with a shrinking population of potential students, and efforts to increase external contributions and funding.

Campus

A map of the University of North Dakota.

Main campus

The main campus of the University of North Dakota sits in the middle of Grand Forks on University Avenue. The campus is made up of 223 buildings (5.33 million square feet) on 549 acres (2.22 km2).[5] The campus stretches roughly one and half miles from east to west and is divided by the meandering English Coulee. The western edge of campus is bordered by Interstate 29, the eastern edge is bordered with University Park, the Grand Forks railyards sit on the south side of campus, and the north side of campus is marked by U.S. Highway 2 which is called Gateway Drive in Grand Forks. The central and eastern areas of campus are the older sections and the northern and western areas are newer.

Central campus and eastern campus

Merrifield Hall

The central campus area is the oldest part of UND and contains many historic buildings.[22] This area is home to most academic buildings on campus. At the heart of campus sits the Chester Fritz Library, the largest library in North Dakota. The 82-foot (25 m) tower of the library is a familiar landmark on University Avenue.[22] Behind the library is the park-like setting of the central campus mall. The mall includes several statues and is a popular place for students to study. The mall is lined with historic buildings including Merrifield Hall, Twamley Hall, Babcock Hall, Montgomery Hall, and the old Carnegie Library.[22] The location of the first building on campus, Old Main, is marked with Old Main Memorial Plaza and the eternal flame of the Old Main Memorial Sphere.[22] Other buildings in the central part of campus include the School of Law, the North Dakota Museum of Art, Memorial Union, Gamble Hall, the J. Lloyd Stone Alumni Center, the Burtness Theatre, and Chandler Hall—the oldest remaining building on the UND campus.[23] The English Coulee flows along the western edge of the central campus area and on the western bank of the Coulee sits the Chester Fritz Auditorium and the Hughes Fine Arts Center. The historic 1907 Adelphi Fountain is located next to the Coulee as is the new Spiritual Center.[22][24]

On the eastern edge of the central campus area sits Memorial Stadium, the old Ralph Engelstad Arena, and the Hyslop Auditorium. These structures are all old athletic venues which have been replaced with new structures located elsewhere on campus. The eastern part of campus is also the home of the Energy and Environmental Research Center complex which includes the National Center for Hydrogen Technology. The Grand Forks Human Nutrition Research Center, which is operated by the United States Department of Agriculture, is also found in this part of campus.[8] A five-story parking garage sits directly at the corner of University Avenue and Columbia Road. At the extreme eastern portion of campus sits University Park which is operated by the Grand Forks Park District.

Northern campus and western campus

Ralph Engelstad Arena

To the north of the central campus area, along Columbia Road, sits the School of Medicine complex. The main School of Medicine building is the remodeled St. Michael's Hospital building which was built in 1951.[22] Other buildings in the medical school complex include the Biomedical Research Center and the Neuroscience Research Facility.[22] Further north sits an area that is called University Village. This land sat virtually empty for decades, but has recently been developed for UND, commercial, and residential purposes.[25] University Village is anchored by the $100+ million dollar Ralph Engelstad Arena which is used by the UND Fighting Sioux ice hockey teams. University Village is also home to the Betty Engelstad Sioux Center, the new Student Wellness Center, the UND bookstore, a condo development, a medical clinic, and several commercial properties.

Clifford Hall

The western part of the UND campus is a newer area with modern styles of architecture.[22] This area is home to the John D. Odegard School of Aerospace Sciences (originally named the Center for Aerospace Sciences or "CAS") which includes Odegard Hall, Clifford Hall, Ryan Hall, and Streibel Hall.[22] Directly adjacent to the Aerospace Complex sits the Skalicky Business Incubator, the Ina Mae Rude Entrepreneur Center, and a Hilton Garden Inn. Ground was recently broken for the Center of Excellence for Life Sciences and Technology.[26] The western part of campus is also the location of most residence halls and student apartments. A new $20 million dollar student housing project called University Place recently opened on University Avenue.[27]

Other facilities

UND operates a small campus consisting of several buildings at Grand Forks International Airport where aviation students train.[28] UND Aerospace also operates flight training centers in Crookston, Minnesota, Duluth, Minnesota, Phoenix, Arizona, Spokane, Washington, and Williston, North Dakota.[29] UND owns and operates the Ray Richards 9-hole golf course south of the main UND campus.[30] The Fighting Sioux football team is a major tenant of the city of Grand Forks-owned Alerus Center. The School of Medicine operates several clinics throughout the state.[31]

Sustainability

University of North Dakota has begun to address some aspects of sustainability within its campus operations. Former university president, President Kupchella, signed the President’s Climate Commitment, and a standing Council on Environmental Stewardship and Sustainability made up of representatives from various departments is exploring ways to green the campus.[32] The campus’s current recycling system reduces UND’s overall waste stream by 20%. To further minimize impact, UND has conducted lighting retrofits and installed heat recovery systems and power management technology for peak and off-peak use adjustment. Students are also involved in promoting sustainability throughout the campus through such events as recycling competitions. With these efforts, University of North Dakota received a C grade on the College Sustainability Report Card 2009 released by the Sustainable Endowments Institute.[33]

Academics

Memorial Union building.

UND has ten academic divisions:[34]

Altogether, UND offers 89 undergraduate majors, 63 undergraduate minors, 57 master's programs, 23 doctoral programs, two professional programs (medicine and law), and a specialist diploma program in educational leadership.[35] UND also has an interdisciplinary program that allows students to obtain a degree in virtually any course of study.[36] A collection of online classes and degree programs are offered for students around the nation and world.[37] UND is one of only 47 public universities in the United States that has both accredited schools of law and medicine.[5] Nearly all professors hold the highest degree available in their profession and UND is fully accredited.[5] On campus, academic classrooms range from smaller rooms capable of seating around twenty students to large lecture bowls capable of seating hundreds at a time. Many areas have wireless access for laptops and technologically equipped classrooms enable professors to offer interactive lectures. UND offers 1,000 computer workstations for student use and computer labs can be found in the libraries, Memorial Union, and in several academic areas.[5]

Libraries

Chester Fritz Library

UND has three major libraries which, together, form the largest system of research libraries in the state of North Dakota.[38] The Chester Fritz Library is the largest library in the state.[39] It houses 1.4 million volumes, provides access to approximately 28,000 electronic journal subscriptions, and owns over 20,000 electronic books.[40] It also serves as a U.S. patent and trademark depository and a government document depository.[38] UND's special collections department is known for its genealogical resources, including Norwegian Bygdeboker, or Norwegian farm and town records.[41] Branches of the Chester Fritz Library include the Energy and Environmental Research Library, the F.D. Holland Geology Library, and the Gordon Erickson Music Library.[38] The School of Law operates the Thormodsgard Law Library[42] and the School of Medicine operates the Harley E. French Library of the Health Sciences.[43]

Division of Continuing Education

The division offers many distance learning and online degree programs. It offers undergraduate level programs in Chemical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechanical Engineering.

It also offers graduate level programs like MBA, Applied Economics, Educational Leadership, Forensic Psychology, Social Work, Public Administration and Nursing.

They also offer a Doctoral level program in Educational Leadership, with some on campus face to face requirements.

Research

UND is classified by the Carnegie Foundation as a doctoral/research-intensive institution.[44] This level of research activity is shown in UND's research statistics which, in fiscal year 2006, included program awards that reached $94.3 million, sponsored program expenditures that reached $81.2 million, and an overall research portfolio that included $315 million in total ongoing and committed accounts.[45] Research activity at UND focuses on health sciences, nutrition, energy and environmental protection, aerospace, and engineering.[5] As a major component of the Red River Valley Research Corridor, UND operates many research units including the Energy and Environmental Research Center, the School of Medicine, the Center for Rural Health, the Center for Innovation, the Upper Midwest Aerospace Consortium, the Bureau of Governmental Affairs, the Bureau of Educational Services and Applied Research, and the Social Science Research Institute.[46] The Energy and Environmental Research Center, located on the eastern fringes of the UND campus, has been recognized as a leader in researching cleaner, more efficient forms of energy.[47] The EERC operates a number of research units at UND including the National Center for Hydrogen Technology.

In May 2006, students from UND unveiled a new space suit that they had developed to be used by astronauts that may someday travel to Mars. The students were working off of a $100,000 grant from NASA and the suit was tested in the Badlands of western North Dakota. The suit weighs 47 pounds and costs only a fraction of the standard $22 million cost for a NASA spacesuit. The suit was developed in just over a year by the students.[48]

Athletics

Alerus Center, home of UND football

UND's athletic teams currently bear the name of the Fighting Sioux.[49] Although the official school colors of UND are green and pink, this color combination is rarely employed outside of official or ceremonial applications. The colors are representative of North Dakota's state flower, the Wild Prairie Rose.[2] The official athetic teams colors of UND are Green and White adopted in the 1920s.

The University separately licenses movies for showing on this channel.[77]

Fighting Sioux nickname controversy

On May 14, 2009, The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved a motion to retire The University of North Dakota’s Sioux nickname and logo, unless the university received approval by both of the state's Sioux tribes to continue using the nickname and logo by October 1, 2009, with full retirement to be completed no later than October 1, 2010.[78] The Spirit Lake Sioux Tribe held a referendum vote to either approve or deny continued use of the nickname and logo, the Spirit Lake tribe voted giving overwhelming support for UND to continue to use the name. Ultimately lacking the support from Standing Rock Sioux Tribe as the Standing Rock Sioux tribal council voted down approving to allow the Standing Rock Tribal Members a chance to vote. On March 22nd 2010 a petition with 1004 signatures asking for a referendum vote, was denied. Tribal council members have refused to recognize or uphold the 1969 ceremony. In 1969 , then Tribal Chairman Aljoe Agard sent a delegation to UND, where a naming ceremony was held on campus giving UND the right to use the name, in exchange for educational benefits for the tribes members. There has not been a referendum vote held on Standing Rock. on April 8, 2010 the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved a motion to retire the Fighting Sioux nickname. The 2011 North Dakota Legislature passed House Bill 1263, which mandated the fighting sioux name be retained. The Law to keep the name and logo goes into affect August 1st 2011. The NCAA has not recognized the Spirit Lake vote and continues to hold their position on their policy ruling. The NCAA scheduled a meeting to be held at Bismarack ND, when the NCAA found North Dakota had an open meetings law, the meeting was cancelled and is rescheduled to be held at indiana. Neither of the tribes were invited to this meeting. [79] While a new nickname has yet to be chosen, the school has set a June 30th 2011 deadline for retailers to sell off the last of their Sioux logo merchandise.[80]
