Campus President

It is an honor and privilege serving as president of Dakota College at Bottineau. Our mission emphasizes a quality education in a caring environment, and DCB is full of caring faculty and staff dedicated to seeing their students succeed and grow through educational opportunities. DCB features unique academic programs that effectively prepare tomorrow’s workforce for the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead. The campus has a long history of serving north-central North Dakota, dating back to its founding as the state’s Forestry School. DCB is situated at the base of the beautiful Turtle Mountains near the Canadian border in one of the most scenic regions of our state providing ample opportunities for outdoor, year-round recreational activities. Minot State University and Dakota College at Bottineau enjoy a strong relationship, and I am proud to serve as president of both schools. Welcome to DCB and Go Lumberjacks!
