North Dakota United, through its long association with the American Federation of Teachers, has a proud history of advocating for the rights of staff and faculty at the public universities and colleges in the state of North Dakota. 


NDU has members at every institution in the North Dakota University System, and these members are passionate about improving the quality of education at our public university system in the state, and earning better treatment and respect for the workers at these institutions. Our members work at:


* Bismarck State College

* Dakota College at Bottineau

* Dickinson State University

* Jamestown College

* Mayville State University

* Minot State University

* North Dakota State College of Science

* Valley City State University

* Williston State College

* University of North Dakota


NDU is actively involved in the political process to make your voice heard in policies that affect you and your students. We work closely with the governor, North Dakota State Legislature, State Board of Higher Education and the Department of Public Instruction.


Our political action team lobbies directly to the State Legislature each session, and advocates tirelessly for policies that will strenthen our higher education system in this state. Our staff works year-round to help our members resolve on-the-job issues that come up on campus, from protecting academic freedom to defending our members in grievances and protecting health and retirement benefits.


Our higher education members elect three directors to the NDU Board of Directors.
