Dalrymple, Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem and Agriculture Commissioner Doug Goehring make up the Industrial Commission. The agency also oversees two state-owned businesses, the Bank of North Dakota and the state Mill and Elevator in Grand Forks.
Lynn Helms, director of the state Department of Mineral Resources, said only schools outside North Dakota, such as Montana Tech of the University of Montana, offer training similar to what will be available at the new North Dakota school.
"Our students, our bright scientists that are graduating from high school have had to leave the state to get an education in petroleum geology ... or petroleum engineering," Helms said. "We're now going to be able to give them the very best education in those fields ... and then turn around and employ them in this growing industry."
