N.D. officials launch community college campaignA marketing effort is under way to raise awareness about North Dakota's community colleges.
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A marketing effort is under way to raise awareness about North Dakota's community colleges.
Representatives of the North Dakota University System and the state's five community colleges gathered at Bismarck State College on Tuesday to discuss the new campaign. It's geared toward college-age students but aims to reach out as well to other groups served by community colleges.
Community college leaders want students and parents to see their institutions as an affordable option for secondary education and pathway to well-paying jobs.
Community colleges offer certificate and two-year programs. They also offer classes that would help a student transfer to a four-year institution to complete a bachelor's degree.
