MSU Steps Closer To Picking New President

Posted: Updated:

Minot State is one step closer to naming its new university president. MSU began its search back in September of 2013 and received a total of 37 applicants for the job.

Earlier this month, the presidential search committee narrowed down the candidates to eight, who were then interviewed over the phone.

Now, they have cut the list to four applicants who are being brought on campus this week to meet with students, faculty, and staff.

"There are all kinds of different needs and wants that people want to have. But, we're actually looking for someone with experience that has served as president or vice president of a major university of some kind and has some experience as a dean or of a school in a research institution or another institution similar to Minot State," says Terry Hjelmstad, presidential search committee chairman.

Three candidates will be interviewed by the State Board of Higher Education on February 27 in Minot, with the final selection being made later that day.
