Dereck Ostdahl

NDSU Foundation Team Member since 2021

As a data analyst and report writer, Dereck oversees the delivery of information to meet the Foundation's needs. He performs data analysis; develops, documents, and maintains reports and dashboards; and provides technical assistance for the database and other software.

Dereck was raised in Minot, North Dakota, and moved to Fargo in 2011. He currently lives in West Fargo with his wife, Rafa, and their dog, Rudy. His previous work experience has been in the banking, higher education, and technology sectors, and he's excited to bring that background to the Foundation.

"I enjoy exploring and finding the relationships between numbers to tell a story that is hidden within the data we use every day. I take pride in supporting the mission of the Foundation by enabling others to make better informed decisions and have more productive conversations to help enhance NDSU."
