WELCOME TO CONTINUING EDUCATION! As a North Dakotan, I love summer. I love the opportunity to grow a garden, let my kids play in the sprinklers, golf and so much more. But autumn…fall.. is something entirely special on its own. Wearing sweatshirts, the start of hockey season, soup weather – all are my favorite and I look forward to them more and more as I get older.

Building Trust

Leadership Journey

Influencing Others

Coaching

What does trust have to do with business success? Everything. Trust is directly linked to employee engagement, retention, productivity, and innovation. Leaders who demonstrate trust and trustworthiness inspire higher levels of performance and organizational commitment. This course introduces the Trust Builders, actions leaders can take to build and sustain trusting trelationships, as well as common trust breakers that can quickly erode or break trust. 9/18 • Wed 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM BSC NECE, Room 101 Instructor: Dot Frank Fee: $139 Course ID: 5600145

Dwight Eisenhower: The Man and the Leader

When he left the presidency on January 20, 1961, critics viewed Dwight Eisenhower as little more than a benign do-nothing president who, in the words of one observer, was “armed with a putter, a winning smile, and little else.” Now, more than 60 years later, Dwight Eisenhower is ranked as one of our greatest presidents. By every measure, President Eisenhower’s accomplishments are formidable: He peacefully ended the Korean War, defused Cold War tensions with diplomacy, refused to use the atomic bomb, stimulated the economy, built the interstate highway system, balanced the federal budget, deployed the military to enforce desegregation, and saved the two-party system by purging isolationists and extremists from the Republican Party. But behind the famous smile and grandfatherly image was a complex man: A sentimentalist who often used a volcanic temper, a cunning and shrewd politician, and meticulous and demanding manager, and a superb general who offered a prophetic warning on the power of the military-industrial complex. This course will use lecture, video, and class discussion to reveal Dwight Eisenhower as a man, a leader, and – in many ways – a most quintessential American figure. 10/15, 10/22 (2xs) • Tue 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

“. . . To Preserve Peace on the Frontiers”: Indian Depredation Claims and Native American Policy, 1796-1920

Fearing frontier violence, in 1796 early national leaders developed a policy to preserve peace on the frontiers by providing a legal mechanism under which settlers and Indians alike could receive compensation for wrongs committed against each other. For the next 124 years, claims filed under this policy chugged their way through the War and Interior Departments, in and out of Congress, and finally before the United States Court of Claims and, on appeal, to the U. S. Supreme Court. Little used by Indians, who infrequently resorted to this alien legal process, white Westerners used the policy to supplement or “insure”—yes, like an insurance policy—their life in the West. Based on his book Indian Depredation Claims, 1796-1920 published by the University of Oklahoma Press, Skogen will provide a background to the policy, discuss its implementation, and provide case studies about settlers using it to honestly or fraudulently gain compensation under it. 11/21 • Thu 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM BSC NECE, Auditorium Room 304 Instructor: Larry Skogen Fee: $20 Course ID: 7070012

All refunds are made by mail unless paid with a credit card; in which case the card is credited. Please allow four weeks to process refunds. If cancellation is less than five (5) business day prior to the first session no refund is available. Full refunds are guaranteed if BSC Continuing Education and TrainND cancels a course. Can a class be cancelled because of low enrollment? If we have to cancel a class due to low enrollment, we will notify you as soon as possible before the class is scheduled to begin. You will receive a full refund of your tuition or transfer to another course of your choice, space permitting. How do I know if a course is cancelled? In the event a class must be cancelled, participants will be notified prior to the start of the class. In case of inclement weather, please check local radio and television stations for class cancellation announcements.
