The Nice Center at North Dakota State University is an entrepreneurship center. Our mission is entrepreneurship for all.
We pursue this goal by teaching, training, and supporting students, faculty and community members. We are pursuing the future of higher education alongside an incredible group of educators and innovators in our Nice Leadership Council. As a land-grant institution, our role is to serve the entire state of North Dakota, which is why we are here to serve North Dakotan entrepreneurs, no matter their age.
At the Nice Center, we believe the most successful entrepreneurs are those who learn and lead with empathy. By understanding the problems and pain-points of others they can create world-changing solutions, which all begins by being nice.
Nice Leadership Council
We sought out the brightest and kindest humans we could find to serve on our advisory board. Their insights and perspectives challenge us to think bigger about our impact and ensure our work continues to stay focused on what matters.
Nice Student Fellows
Nice Faculty Fellows
Entrepreneurship is not owned by the College of Business; it should be across campus and the community. It also should not be limited to the idea of launching a business and making money. It can include innovation and creativity, as well. That’s why we rallied together the Nice Faculty Fellows: to integrate innovation, creativity and entrepreneurship into courses and research.
