Founded in 1883, six years before North Dakota became a state, our founders believed they could make a difference. And they did.
Our first graduating class of six women and two men were our first Leaders in Action. Most notably, Dr. Cora Smith King was the first woman to receive a medical license in the state and was a fierce advocate for women.
