Dr. Dean Bresciani flew out to Dickinson at noon. He's meeting with the Dickinson Press Editorial Board. Tomorrow, he'll sit down with State Senator John Andrist and Representative Bob Skarphol (SCAR-PULL).

Bresciani says NDSU needs to be accessible throughout the state, and do a better job at communicating with their counterparts out west.

"We need to open those doors and we need to hear where we've fallen short or where it is that we haven't been successful in communicating in both our sense of responsibility and also what we can contribute to everyone in the state, not just those nearby."

Bresciani is also hitting the Alumni Steak Fry in Velva tomorrow night.
