SBHE Releases Shirvani from Contract

The State Board of Higher Education today unanimously passed a motion releasing Chancellor Hamid Shirvani from his contract, as the Chancellor requested. Duaine Espegard, president of SBHE, said the Board solidly supports the changes that the Chancellor advanced, including becoming a true university system, the Pathways to Student Success plan and the updated policies that incorporate best practices of systems across the country. "However, Chancellor Shirvani felt that he had accomplished as much as he could, and asked us to release him so that he could move on," Espegard said. "We would like to thank Ham for all he has done to move our system to the next level, and we wish him and his family the best."
