North Dakota Spirit:Â The Campaign forÂ UND will raise $ 100 million to increase the number of student scholarships awarded; $ 100 million for endowment funds for faculty support; $ 50 million to enhance programs to respond to state and global needs; and $ 50 million to improve existing or add new buildings and technology.
It is the first comprehensive fundraising effort in the Universityâ€™s history.
â€œWe call it North Dakota Spirit,â€ said UND President Robert Kelley, â€œbecause as our stateâ€™s flagship university we carry the spirit of North Dakota in all we do. This campaign will not only have a positive impact at UND, but the ripple effect will be felt throughout North Dakota through the work our students and faculty do to further economic and community development throughout the state.”
