MINNEAPOLIS (KEYC) - University of Minnesota’s Center for Transportation Studies appointed Region 9′s Development Commission Executive Director Nicole Griensewic as their first female chair of the executive committee.

The center is a hub for transportation research and education for the university. The Executive Committee serves as the main decision-making body for the center, responsible for providing strategic direction to staff and overseeing the implementation of programs.

“Being able to have this opportunity is really unique for the region, to have someone from Greater Minnesota that represents more of a rural area, as we have our own unique transportation needs, and we need our own innovation for transportation research,” said Griensewic.

Griensewic begins her role July 1 for a two-year term with the option for two more years afterward.
