A Message from the Dean

Welcome to Dakota College at Bottineau! We are pleased

that you are interested in the college and the many programs

we offer.

A college education has become increasingly important in

today’s society. The knowledge, skills and abilities acquired

during a college education are proven to enhance your future.

A study by the College Board in 2013, titled Education Pays

2013: the Benefits of Higher Education, shows that people

with higher levels of education are more likely to earn more

and more likely to be employed, are more likely to receive employment benefits such as

health insurance and pension plans, are more active citizens, have healthier lifestyles, and

are more likely to move up the socioeconomic ladder.

However, these benefits are most noticeable to those individuals who actually graduate

from college. This is where Dakota College at Bottineau comes in. As a small college, we

are committed to each student’s success. We are able to do this through small class sizes,

exceptional personal attention, and overall excellence in our programs and services. At

Dakota College, we don’t just want to welcome you on your first day of classes — we

want to see you successfully complete your program of study and to be the first ones to

congratulate you at the graduation ceremony.

Whether you are interested in transferring to a four-year university or one of our many

career and technical education programs, we will help you find the path to meet your

goals. We have been providing a quality education in a caring college community for

over 100 years. Our dedicated faculty and staff know how to help students be successful.

I encourage you to visit Dakota College at Bottineau. Learn how we can help you

achieve your goals in an academic environment where people truly get to know you and

are focused on your success.

Dr. Jerry Migler

Campus Dean
