Minot State University

Minot State University is built upon a core commitment to students, learning, service, cooperation, and a respect for people and place. Our Vision 2013 is a vision for Minot State University to become a premier public institution in the Great Plains. This bold initiative rests on a philosophy of engagement and place. We believe that the university experience should provide students connection between academic subjects and the reality of life on the Great Plains, between theory and practice and between local experiences and global realities. This philosophy is grounded in an expectation that all students can learn, grow, and succeed if given the support, guidance and an engaging learning environment. Minot State University seeks individuals that will help us create a community that is pervasively focused on: student growth, learning and success; the development of students with integrity, character, and intelligence; institutional commitment to civic engagement, stewardship of its local and global place; and meaningful service for the welfare of others.
