Automatic TRANSCRIPT

The online master's program in the next one will be nursing PHD's and masters, but this is getting more talent to what we need in some of those a lot of those that are outside the state, but we're getting those the in the state in any event, we have more professors teaching more subjects that you. Indeed. Because a significant part of that is being funded by our online program. So is overall online education, then you're gonna you're saying we'll end up with more people with graduates more people with options on what to do. How does that translate to the workforce needs a huge impact on the workforce needs because we have in this country? Thirty over thirty million people, but thirty to forty percent of the state of North Dakota has some college, but not a full college. We need more college graduates in the world about and let's people that are already in their career having completed their college maybe need to add a masters to really have a big impact for their career and for their region. They can do that from wherever they are whether they're in what I Wilson Dickinson or any place online with a wide range of we have over one hundred degrees that we offer online that gives a lot of opportunities for people crossing state is it fair for people to be critical of higher education. Let's just say here in North Dakota. U n d you know, obviously could make the same case nationally. But I I want you to think about your institution university, North Dakota. Is it fair to be critical to say, you know, it's not it's not kept up with workforce needs of America. Or other words to me the other day, tell me why would you go to college? Why would you go get? Why would you go get a degree when you can you can be an electrician in two years out there making really? Really good money. What would you say? I would say that. If you look at the forecast, they're saying nearly all of the jobs created the next decade in the world of automation is going to require a college degree. We have a huge increase in demand for college graduates nationwide. The number of college students going in pursuing a bachelor's degree is declining. That's why you're having this huge differentiation of compensation between college graduates, and those that don't have a college graduates. If you want to narrow that we need to better meet the demand for college graduates, the reason that the for profits got ahead because a nonprofit in public, universities aren't necessarily always the quickest to respond. But now the universities like university of North Dakota responding you're seeing the for profits declining because they got ahead to meet a demand that wasn't being met. We're now meeting demand along with Arizona state, and Purdue and Penn State, those who view as our competitors online. We have a just a short time left, but I do want to touch on a couple of things. That we haven't got to one of them is this list of the top twenty five most innovative universities. What what the criteria for that list? Well, the criteria is your voted on by other presidents and Provosts the nation into a list with MIT and Harvard and Stanford and Caltech and all these premier universities is a huge honor for North Dakota. And it's an example of what the innovative stuff we're doing to improve student success to expand our research to increase their impact on the state to renew our campus with untraditional ways public private partnerships. But I mean, this is this is an example of you know, I mean. Top twenty five innovative university in the nation. And when you look at the rest of the list, you're finding Harvard and Stanford and MIT were the were the only one on the list, north west of Chicago. So if you take a line from Chicago to Stanford and up that whole corner of the nation. There's only one university on that list. University of North Dakota, not the gophers knocked the badger and my favorite status number nine most military friendly school. That's a good one who are pro-military. Thanks for the conversation. Appreciate your time. I think it was I learned a ton. I really did you know been a longtime fan of university of North Dakota. But to be able to hear some of the things that you just don't hear about. I think it's important that we appreciate it. And we'll we'll do this again. How about that, Debbie? Great could've thought you stop take a break. Come back with Senator. Kevin kramer. Talkradio townhall continues to agriculture NFL are one. How do we know we ask farmers including Paul Thomas? Paul talk a little bit about the value. You derive from ethanol is what drives the value of me being able to track. My corn and extra fifty sixty miles NFL plans and get a little higher price for it. But then in turn also the DVD's that come out of that ethanol plants also go to the feedlots provide a high protein source of feed for their cattle. That's mixed with a corn ethanol itself, you know, ended up in all our local pumps reduces the price we pay for what happens if ethanol is no more. How would that affect you removing ethanol in removing the corn and our diversified systems? Will just put more pressure on all the other crops are girl by increasing and having a negative effect on prices on every single crop. You know, it's not just going to lower the price of corn in all reality. It's going to lower the prices of every single commodity we grow agriculture and ethanol or one just as foreigners.
