SHBE will review the list of capital projects

The North Dakota Council on Higher Education will be asked in the coming months to review eleven proposed capital projects to forward to the governor and legislature for possible funding.

A draft 2023-2025 document was presented to the Budget and Finance Committee on Thursday. Projects are the number one priority for each of the eleven institutions.

The UND is considering decommissioning the Hyslop Sports Center and repurposing the site into a science…engineering…and national security corridor. The decision requests $8.8 million in general funds and $2.2 million in other funding.

The eleven projects combined total more than $202 million in state support.
The committee took no formal action on the claims this week.
