The past decade has been a time of accomplishment and advancement at NDSU, and more achievements are expected in the future. That was the assessment of President Joseph A Chapman during his 2009 State of the University Address. Chapman, who became NDSU’s 13th president in June 1999, focused on the university’s growth and success since that time. "North Dakota State University is a truly fine institution with a long tradition of educational excellence. We bring passion to our work, and are strongly committed to providing the best possible environment for our students, faculty and staff now and in the future." "In the past 10 years, we have accomplished a great deal for our students and for our state. We have broadened our research base, brought more educational opportunities to more students and created facilities for both to flourish. We have furthered the strong traditions of this great institution, and we have been to the Big Dance."
