A proposal by the North Dakota Board of Higher Education that would cut down on the number of face-to-face meetings and take those gatherings off the campuses is being criticized by college professors and others.
The board next month will approve meeting plans for 2018.
Chairman Don Morton is proposing the board come together four times a year in Bismarck. Other regularly scheduled meetings would be held via video network.
Morton says he wants to make the best use of board members' time.
Dickinson State University professor Debora Dragseth is president of the state Council of College Faculties. She says the change would be bad for transparency and collaboration.
