Campus Connection, also known as Campus Solutions or ConnectND, is the online student administration system for the North Dakota University System (NDUS).

Faculty and staff are given security access to some, but not all, information based on the type of position held. This access is created by assigning security roles to each employee. For example, faculty are assigned the SR Faculty role which provides access to class rosters, grade rosters, and advisee information. Other positions are assigned different roles based on the type of information needed to carry out the duties of that position. 

In order to be granted faculty or staff security access in Campus Connection, the university system requires each employee to complete the NDUS Data Privacy Training.
