Minot State Keynote Speakers:


Chelsie Hultz is a proud alumnus of Minot State University. After spending eleven years teaching elementary students in Minot, she has come full circle and returned to MSU to teach in the Teacher Education and Kinesiology Department.

Mrs. Hultz is a trainer for North Dakota United’s ethics course Elevating the Profession. This one-of-a-kind ethics course is paving the way to help train educators across the nation with the new course materials.

Teacher mental health is Chelsie’s lifelong research interest. She aims to support educators as they navigate professional demands while balancing personal well-being.

Berthold, North Dakota is Chelsie’s hometown. She and her husband have four boys between them and make their home in Minot. Her faith, family, friends and people matter most to her. That includes you!


Dr. Zeb Wallace is originally from Russellville, Alabama but has called Minot home since 2017. He has always had a deep fascination with how people and places are interconnected but did not realize he was a geographer until his second year of college. By chance, he enrolled in a World Regional Geography course that year and fell in love with geography. Dr. Wallace has a passion for helping students identify unique spatial patterns around our world and to recognize just how interconnected we all are.

Dr. Wallace’s research focuses on how people react and respond to environmental hazards. His research looks at risk perception and communication within rural communities, and how these elements vary from one place to the next. Additionally, he is interested in how indirect experience with a hazard can be used as a substitute for direct experience to help communities better prepare and respond to hazards. Dr. Wallace’s research incorporates a variety of methods, both quantitative and qualitative, including surveys, interviews, statistical analysis, and spatial analysis using GIS software.

In his free time, Dr. Wallace enjoys playing the violin, being involved in community theater, and spending time outdoors hiking and exploring new landscapes.
