"Higher education serves North Dakota as a key economic driver that meets the workforce, research, innovation and intellectual needs of the State and its people," said Duaine Espegard, president of the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education. "Those needs are going to increase as the state`s economy blossoms. This report validates the strategic connection between a strong university system and a strong economy. It`s essential that we make wise investments in higher education so that we can fulfill the needs of those who are creating the state`s future."
NDUS says this impact is a result of $1.6 billion in student spending and other economic factors.
