FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Three higher education institutions in North Dakota are working on big projects.

Jamestown College on Thursday broke ground for a $1.7 million facility in Fargo for its new doctoral program in physical therapy. President Robert Badal says Fargo is a regional health care hub and students will be able to get the clinical experiences they need during the three-year program.

Also in Fargo, North Dakota State University has announced the creation of the NDSU School of Music. The Board of Higher Education approved the school last week.

In the western part of the state, the Williston State College Foundation on Thursday helped break ground for a 74-unit housing project for people who provide so-called essential community services, including employees at the college, at law enforcement agencies and at medical facilities.
