BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Presidents of three Bismarck colleges have launched a joint effort to promote public service.

The Institute for Culture and Public Service will utilize the resources of Bismarck State College, the University of Mary and United Tribes Technical College to provide training and degrees in public service.

The Bismarck Tribune reports that Mary President James Shea (shay), BSC President Larry Skogen and United Tribes President David Gipp late last year signed a charter creating the institute. Director Sam Condic says the goal is to take advantage of Bismarck's role as the state capital to foster future industry and public leaders through academics, workshops and internships.
