Board seeks nominations for North Dakota University System interim Chancellor

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education is soliciting nominations and expressions of interest for qualified individuals interested in serving as interim Chancellor for the North Dakota University System (NDUS). NDUS serves approximately 49,000 students through its 11 campuses around the state: two world-class research institutions, four outstanding regional universities and five vibrant community colleges. Each campus offers different learning and living experiences, and all share a commitment to excellence and personal and professional growth.

The SBHE is the policy-setting body for NDUS. The Board consists of seven citizen members appointed to four-year terms by the Governor as well as one student appointed to serve a one-year term. The Council of College Faculties selects the Board's non-voting faculty adviser, and the NDUS Staff Senate selects the Board's non-voting staff adviser. The interim Chancellor will report to the SBHE.

The Board is seeking a leader with significant experience in higher education and statewide leadership. The individual must be able to work collaboratively with the presidents, represent the system effectively with the Legislature and the Governor's office and provide leadership to the System office. This qualified leader should be willing to make a one-year commitment at minimum.

For confidential inquiries, please feel free to reach out to Narcisa A. Polonio, Ed.D. Executive Vice President, Association of Community College Trustees, at 202.276.1983 or

Interested individuals should forward a letter of interest and resume to immediately. The Board will review applications at its next meeting on June 20 and plans to make an appointment before the end of the month.
