BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota educators, lawmakers, and business and community leaders are meeting at the state Capitol to discuss the future of higher education.

The Envision 2030 planning initiative is being headed by North Dakota University System Chancellor Mark Hagerott. He says the goal is to address issues facing the state’s 11 public colleges and universities, including administrative and tuition costs and student retention.

Panels on Monday were to discuss topics that included the state’s changing demographics and needs of businesses. Sessions also were slated on topics ranging from diversity to technology.

Hagerott says recommendations from the discussions will be published next year.
