North Dakota University System
This issue of "Legislative Review" takes a look at the news in higher education from February 28 to March 4, 2011. This Legislative Review reports that: (1) HB 1263, which deals with the UND Fighting Sioux nickname and logo, was opposed by the SBHE. Board members cited concerns, including the constitutionality of the bill, impact on the campus of delaying the transition process now underway and the potential repercussions for UND athletics. The SBHE voted to support the amended version of HB 1353 related to the UND SOMHS. The amended bill changes the composition of the medical school advisory council and revises the SOMHS mission statement. However, the board continues to support additional funding in HB 1003 for added student enrollment and residency positions. The SBHE also voiced opposition to HCR 3046, which was introduced February 23; and (2) If HCR 3046 is approved by the Legislative Assembly, an amendment to the state constitution eliminating the State Board of Higher Education, the North Dakota University System chancellor and the superintendent of public instruction would go before the people of North Dakota for a vote. Its key components and its impacts are described. A list of bills on the week nine agenda is also reported.
