DSU graduate credit proposal approved " Dickinson State University's request to provide limited graduate course offerings to area educators culminated when the State Board of Higher Education recently approved the University's Stage II proposal for limited graduate credit. To document the need for grad- uate classes in the region, DSU sent a survey to teachers and administrators of 19 area school districts who comprise the Roughrider Education Services Program (RESP). Of the more than 150 who responded, 86 per- cent indicated they were "very likely" or "most likely" to take graduate credits in Teacher Education if offered through DSU. "This survey demonstrated the oeed for accessibility and access to quality professional development that Dickinson State University can offer area teachers," said Dr. Jon Brudvig, interim vice president for academic affairs. Graduate classes could be offered as early as summer 2011. DSU will collaborate with other North Dakota universities to ensure that the limited graduate credit offerings transfer into existing grad- uate programs whenever feasible.
