The Campaign for the University of North Dakota

Together, we embark on a $500 million fundraising campaign to build a University of North Dakota for the future: a future where people are empowered to make a difference and where the torch of knowledge is passed on to those who will lead the way.

We do. We lead. We are forever UND.
