Spreading a Lifelong Love of Learning with MIP 

Since 1973, Humanities North Dakota has offered opportunities for lifelong learning through affordable classes and events to North Dakota residents. The courses cover history, philosophy, ethics, literature, languages, jurisprudence in law, comparative religion, archeology, and many more. They are presented in part through the organization’s collaboration with its partner agency, the National Endowment for the Humanities.  

For 30+ years, MIP® has been in the middle of it all. Humanities ND switched to MIP in 1985 after an auditor recommended the organization replace its paper books that consisted of long ledgers and multiple columns.  

Ken Glass, Associate Director of Humanities ND, started with MIP when it was a MS-DOS program, requiring floppy discs to run.  

“Even from the beginning, MIP worked for our needs. It worked really well because we received large federal grants from the National Endowment for the Humanities, and those grants are open for as long as five years. We needed a system that could manage those grants.”   

Now Humanities ND is ready to make the jump to MIP® Cloud and digitize its finances and its payroll processes.   

“MIP was the only system that worked really well,” Glass said. “…And that’s why we’ve stuck with it for so long.”  

Key takeaways include:   

  • How Humanities ND uses MIP to manage and oversee its funds   
  • How MIP’s reporting suite is helping Humanities ND to tell its financial story   
  • Why Humanities ND continues to use MIP today and migrated to MIP Cloud
