Hamm and Continental donate to UND for geology school
The University of North Dakota announced this week plans for a new geology school, thanks to big-name donations. Continental Resources Inc., and its chairman, Harold Hamm, have each pitched in $5 million toward the Harold Hamm School of Geology and Geological Engineering, which will be a part of UND’s existing school of engineering and mining.
The North Dakota Industrial Commission also approved a donation of $4 million to be paid over four years to update the laboratories and image library.
See the press release at the UND website, which breaks down how the donations will be applied over the next four years.
