NDUS launches search for a new chancellor

(Bismarck, ND) - The search for the next chancellor of the North Dakota University System is officially underway. The application deadline is March 17, with the successful candidate starting on or about July 1, 2015.

"We are excited to launch this process and are looking forward to finding an inspiring, resilient leader who can guide the university system into the future," said Terry Hjelmstad, temporary chair of the State Board of Higher Education.

The North Dakota University System contracted with AGB Search to assist with the process. The applications will be reviewed by the Chancellor Search Advisory Committee and the State Board of Higher Education.
