At This Point Just About Everybody At The Top Of The University System Should Probably Go

I have a letter to the editor in today’s Grand Forks Herald objecting to the idea that Chancellor Hamid Shirvani is everything that’s wrong with North Dakota’s university system. While much of the criticism of his management style may be valid, let’s remember that North Dakota’s universities had major problems before he even arrived. At

Legislative Committee Says Yes To Funding Planned Parenthood

The one pro-life bill yet to reach Governor Jack Dalrymple’s desk is SB2368, which is related to fetal pain. That bill was amended by Rep.

House Votes To Defund NDSU/Planned Parenthood Partnership

Certain members of North Dakota’s university system, and some of their apologists, are throwing a screaming fit over the politically-motivated decision by NDSU President Dean Bresciani to freeze federal grant funds from Obamacare intended for a sex education program.

Recently North Dakota State University raised the ire of legislators when they accepted Obamacare funding to partner with Planned Parenthood for sex education. The legislature had already specifically turned down those funds, and state law prohibits anything but abstinence-based sex education.
