EERC CEO Thomas Erickson
EERC CEO Thomas Erickson has been named to North Dakota Governor Doug Burgum’s Task Force on Higher Education Governance. The 15-member Task Force was created by executive order last month and consists of the governor as chair and 14 members appointed by the Governor. Burgum appointed the members from a pool of more than 230 applicants.

“We are incredibly grateful for the intense interest in serving on this Task Force, which demonstrates the passion North Dakotans feel toward their higher education system,” Burgum said. “This group represents a wide range of backgrounds and expertise that will ensure a thoughtful assessment of our nearly 80-year-old governance structure and whether the higher education system is operating at its full potential to prepare students for success in a world undergoing rapid technological disruption.”

Says Erickson, “I’m honored to have the opportunity to work on this Task Force and to serve North Dakota.”
