University of North Dakota eyes buildings to vacate as part of new master plan - Anna Burleson, Forum News

About a dozen buildings on the University of North Dakota's campus will be closed up and left empty in coming years because the university has more space than it needs. Some of the buildings are in poor condition. A 438-page master plan released this month states much of what needs to be done is contingent on the ability to obtain funding. Interim UND President Ed Schafer wrote in a campuswide memo that the funding most likely won't come from the state. "We are going to have to find alternative ways of funding these projects, and one is to fund the projects from within," he said, referring to ongoing budget cuts at the school. "The budget work we are doing now will result in the university having the flexibility to invest in priority areas."
