The Board is the policy making board for all the institutions of the North Dakota University System. The Board "shall have control and administration of" the state colleges and universities. Selections are confirmed by the Senate from a list of three names chosen by the president of the North Dakota Education Association, the chief justice of the Supreme Court, the superintendent of Public Instruction, the President Pro Tempore of the Senate, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives. A maximum of two graduates from each institution oversought by the Board shall be allowed. Current employees of Board oversought institutions (and those who have been employed within the last two years) shall not be allowed Board membership. When the legislative assembly shall be in session at any time within six months prior to the date of the expiration of the term of any member of the state board of higher education, the governor shall nominate his successor within the first 30 days of such session from a list selected as provided in 15-10-02 NDCC. The governor appoints one student member from a list of names from the North Dakota Student Association. The student will serve a one-year term.
