North Dakota State University President David Cook spent the past two weeks traveling the state and participating in the Research Extension Center field days. It was a time of listening and learning. “I’m very impressed with what we do in agriculture across the state,” said Cook. “We’re doing cutting-edge research that brings communities together and is driven by and with industry. It’s the perfect model and it’s exciting to see it firsthand.” Cook, who took over as NDSU’s president in mid-May, plans to participate in the summer field day programs again. “This is going to be an annual thing for sure.” The full interview can be found online.
