BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - University of Mary's president has announced a $40 million grown campaign for the private Catholic school in Bismarck.
Father James Shea says the Bismarck school can no longer hold back on its need to expand the main campus. The university this year had about 850 students living on campus, which is about 100 more students than the previous record set two years ago.
Shea says the influx of people and businesses to the Bismarck-Mandan area has increased demand for new and established programs for graduates.
The fundraising campaign includes plans for more on-campus housing, increasing the university's endowment, renovation and enhancements to athletic facilities, expansion of Mary's premier health care programs and a new student campus center.
The school announced the campaign on Friday.
