UND President Mark Kennedy Visits EERC

UND President Mark Kennedy toured the Energy & Environmental Research Center (EERC) on July 25, 2016, with CEO Tom Erickson and met others from the EERC. Kennedy began his duties on July 1, as the 12th President of the University, succeeding Interim President Ed Schafer and President Robert Kelley, who retired on January 14, 2016. Kennedy has pledged a commitment to support the mission and vision of the EERC and has expressed a vested interest in furthering the Center’s core programs.

Kennedy came to UND from George Washington University, Washington, D.C., where since 2012 he was Director of the Graduate School of Political Management and Professor. A native of Benson, Minnesota, Kennedy earned a B.S. degree at St. John’s University, Collegeville, Minnesota, and an MBA at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business. He then served as an executive with several firms, including Pillsbury, and today’s Macy’s.

Kennedy will address the EERC staff at a future staff meeting.
