Identity and Access Management

Below is an overview of identity and access management at NDSU.


Through identity and access management, NDSU provides self-service capabilities to faculty and staff who are responsible for managing departmental and cross-departmental access to certain IT services, including group access to departmental workstation computers. Grouper, a web-based tool for IT System group management, is what NDSU uses for identity and access management.

Using Grouper, service managers may have the ability to: 

  • Managing AD groups and share drive access
  • Auto-populate core mailing lists (listservs)
  • Control access to core services (computer lab login, Adobe, CMS, Google Analytics, etc.)
  • Provide "account-info" lookup

Data Security

Access Management may be used to store or transfer public, private, or restricted data, as defined by North Dakota University System Data Classification Standards. NDSU faculty and staff are responsible for protecting private and restricted data, including data subject to export control regulations, FERPA, PCI and other pertinent state and federal laws and industry regulations. Contact the NDSU information security office if you have questions or concerns at
