Rankings

Every accredited college or university offers education, but not every school prepares students to make a real impact the way UND does. We consistently rank among the best for educational quality, affordability and career outcomes. And it's not just for our on-campus programs; year-after-year our online programs climb the ranks.

Leaders in Action

We focus on our goals with the eye of a hawk and rise above whatever challenges come our way. We are leaders that do and doers that lead. We are forever UND.
