At North Dakota State University’s fourth annual Campus Community Partnership flag raising event on Nov. 10, John Deere Electronic Solutions was recognized for its long-standing partnership with the school. A company flag was raised in honor of its collaborative efforts with NSDU and its Research and Technology Park.
“John Deere Electronic Solutions is one of the founding organizations of the Research and Technology Park at NDSU, and absolutely one of the most successful,” said President Dean L. Bresciani, who created the Campus Community Partner program in 2012.
The Campus Community Partner program was developed to recognize private sector businesses that have worked with NDSU for the benefit of the community. There are more than 650 employees at the John Deere Electronics Solutions locations in Fargo, North Dakota.
“This is an exemplar of a model that can be extended nationally, if not internationally, of a major research university and a major corporate entity coming together to create successes that would not have been possible in the past,” Bresciani continued.
Tom Budan, John Deere Electronic Solutions general manager, expects the partnership to continue onward in the future. He also noted that the company has been able to recruit “bright minds” through the relationship with the school.
“NDSU has been a wonderful source of talent,” Budan said. “It is an incredible source of civic pride for our employees to be associated with this great institution.”
