THE UKRAINIAN CULTURAL INSTITUTE

PRESERVING, PROMOTING AND DISPLAYING UKRAINIAN CULTURE IN NORTH DAKOTA

 
 

The Ukrainian Cultural Institute was organized by the North Dakota Ukrainians in 1980.  Its organization was prompted by a desire to preserve the Ukrainian culture in North Dakota.  President of Dickinson State University, Dr. Albert A. Watrel participated with the Ukrainian community in developing the guidelines needed to meet the aims of the proposed organization.


On May 30, 1980, the Ukrainian community and Dickinson State University signed an agreement which read:  "Memorandum of Agreement between the Ukrainian Community and Dickinson State College for the purpose of establishing a Ukrainian Cultural Institute which is dedicated for the furthering of education through the preserving, promoting, and displaying of the Ukrainian Culture".  Dated this 31st Day of May, 1980.

Signed by Albert A Watrel - President Dickinson State College

and Agnes Palanuk - President Ukrainian Cultural Institute.
