North Dakota State University was established in 1890 as the state's first land-grant university. Our mission, while it has expanded, is essentially the same today as it was more than 100 years ago, only today we use industry leading technology to perform our task. We are here to serve people of North Dakota, the nation and the international community through education and discovery, communication, application and preservation of knowledge.
The largest employer in the community, NDSU employs over 4,000 people on the main campus and at research and extension centers throughout the state. We are like a small city in operation 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Our employees perform the same variety of duties you would find in any community of some 12,000 citizens.
All of us at NDSU play an important role in serving our student and public constituencies. The role a faculty member plays in a student's future is obvious. What is not so well-known, but no less important, is the contribution staff members make. We often hear from students that it was a listening ear or a kind word from a staff member which helped ease their transition into independence. It is these kinds of people we actively seek out.

Paid health insurance (single or family coverage)
