Burgum appoints new student member to Board of Higher Education

The State Board of Higher Education will have a new student member this summer.

Gov. Doug Burgum has appointed North Dakota State University student Jacob Dailey to serve a one-year term as a voting member of the board, according to a Monday news release.

Dailey, an agricultural education student, will fill the seat held by outgoing student member Nick Evans, whose term ends June 30. Dailey is originally from Kansas and has served in legislative and executive positions in the NDSU Student Government, recently holding the office of president of that organization.

In addition to his roles in student representation, Dailey has also served in agricultural organizations and was a founding member of the NDSU Agricultural Collective, according to the release.

The SBHE has seven voting members appointed to four-year terms and one voting student member appointed to a one-year term. The board also has two non-voting members who represent the state university system's faculty and staff.
