FARGO - Three area universities are part of a $40 million effort to prepare more effective teachers.

North Dakota State University, Minnesota State University Moorhead and Valley City State University are among 14 campuses to receive funding through a Bush Foundation grant.

The goal is to produce at least 25,000 new and effective teachers over the next decade to replace teachers who are expected to leave or retire.

NDSU, MSUM and VCSU will share $5 million of the funding for their partnership.

The campuses will focus on improving recruitment, preparation, placement and support for new teachers.

Dick Hanson, interim president for NDSU, said the universities coming together will benefit students.

"We will be stronger together than we would be separately," Hanson said.
