The Northern Tier Network Consortium (NTNC) empowers our collective research and education faculty to ask the bigger questions and engage in holistic research with colleagues. We do this where ever we are in the world and don’t have to worry about time, place, or constraints placed on us because we are in the cyber-isolated part of the United States.
