ND Geographic Alliance

Located in Minot, Serving all of North Dakota

We equip North Dakota students and teachers with the geographic knowledge and skills to become empowered global thinkers and problem solvers in an interconnected world.

Attention! - The 2020 NDGA Summer Institute has been moved to August 3-5, 2020

The class will still be held in Minot.  

With all the uncertainty involving the pandemic we have decided to move the summer institute to the first week in August.  We will make every effort to hold the class at that time.  If we have to we will have a hybrid style class that would mix face to face learning with individual snippets of geographic learning.  ​

If you have already registered for the class you do not need to make any changes.  

If you have decided that you no longer are interested, you can contact the University that you were getting the credit from for a refund.  

I will keep you posted on details on a regular basis.  

If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact me at
