North Dakota may take action on UND nickname
GRAND FORKS - UND's Fighting Sioux nickname is on the agenda of the State Board of Higher Education meeting Thursday, and the board may take action on the matter.
The board has the authority to end the use of the nickname but, so far, has asked a committee chaired by board member Grant Shaft to study the matter.
Shaft could not be reached for comment Tuesday.
