Why I Wear Green
I enjoy being part of the impact North Dakota’s flagship university has on the world. I am fortunate to be able to witness how UND’s alumni make a difference in their communities and the growth of future leaders on campus.
As Senior Director of Development for the Nistler College of Business & Public Administration, Jay connects with alumni and engages them with their alma mater to keep moving UND forward. Jay strives to help alumni and friends provide resources for UND to build upon its leading status in North Dakota higher education by supporting programs, faculty, scholarships, and the new NCoBPA building.
