BISMARCK — Gov. Doug Burgum appointed UND student Sadie Hanson to a one-year term as the student representative on the state Board of Higher Education on Friday, May 20.

Hanson, who will be a senior this fall at UND, is studying public affairs and marketing, according to a news release from Burgum’s office. She is also pursuing a master’s in public administration. She has served as the commissioner of governmental affairs for UND Student Government, is a member of UND’s strategic planning committee and student ambassadors. She is involved in a variety of community groups.

“Sadie’s experience in student leadership positions across UND and Grand Forks make her well-positioned to represent her peers and drive transformational change for the future of North Dakota’s higher education system,” Burgum said in the release.

Hanson’s term on the board begins July 1. She will replace Gracie Lian, who is also a UND student and has spent the last year serving on the board.

The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has eight voting members appointed by the governor, including one student member, and two non-voting members who represent the North Dakota University System’s faculty and staff. The board oversees the system’s 11 public colleges and universities.
