Fargo-area colleges combine on vaccinology minor

FARGO, N.D. — A trio of colleges in the Fargo and Moorhead, Minn., area are combining to offer an academic minor in vaccine development, with a financial boost from Sanford Health.

The vaccinology program will be conducted by the Tri-College University, a partnership among North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Concordia College.

The courses will be available to eight students, mostly life sciences majors, at each school. They will need to complete between 21 and 24 credits.

Sanford Health, which is based in Fargo and Sioux Falls, S.D., is giving $150,000 to pay for teachers. The endowment is the first in the 40-year history of the Tri-College University.

Tri-College provost Tim Flakoll says the program is the first of its kind and should provide research and job opportunities.
