Who We Are

The 1883 Collective was formed to provide name, image, and likeness opportunities for student athletes at the University of North Dakota. Our collective will give student athletes the chance to serve the community. It will also act as a connection point with local businesses for promotional purposes. Through these connections, we believe that we can significantly and positively impact Greater Grand Forks while simultaneously creating an environment for student athletes to be more successful. The 1883 Collective exists to create these opportunities in parallel with the University of North Dakota’s mission and values, ultimately creating a stronger university and a stronger state.

Who We Are Not

The 1883 Collective is not a pay for participation organization. Student athletes will not be compensated just for being athletes. 

Ways That We Support Student Athletes

Community service, involvement, and engagement

We will provide and foster meaningful opportunities for student athletes to connect and serve the community, by working with verified charitable partners and community organizations.

Marketing and sponsorship opportunities

The 1883 Collective serves as a brokerage for pairing UND student athletes with businesses looking for new and exciting marketing and sponsorship opportunities featuring the name, image, and likeness of these athletes.

Mentorship and guidance

With NIL opportunities and the rules governing them constantly changing, The 1883 Collective serves as a trusted organization that can help UND’s student athletes navigate the system and help them be set up for success. Our team can help guide and mentor student athletes through building their personal brand, contract negotiations, and compliance.
