The North Dakota Compass (ND Compass) website was launched in February 2013 to provide reliable, accurate, and unbiased data and information on a variety of topics associated with aspects of quality of life in North Dakota. February 2018 marks the 5 year anniversary of the ND Compass project. To celebrate this milestone, Ina Cernusca, ND Compass research specialist, and Kendra Erickson-Dockter, ND Compass project director, share some project-level accomplishments as confirmed by an evaluation that was funded by the Bush Foundation.
