DSU presidential search committee wraps up distance interviews

Ten candidates for Dickinson State University president were interviewed today via distance-learning technology by the DSU presidential search committee. The committee chose to invite 5 to the university's campus for in-person interviews mid-September.

"I was impressed by the wide variety and depth of experience and knowledge that the 10 candidates we interviewed today brought to our search," DSU presidential search committee chair Kari Reichert said. "I am confident that we have narrowed the list to those that would best serve the needs of the campus and community now and well into the future."

The finalists that will proceed to the in-person interview stage include:
  • Stephen Easton, J.D., current professor and former dean of the college of law, University of Wyoming, Wyoming
  • Daniel H. Hanson, Ph.D., president, Peru State College, Nebraska
  • Cheryl D. Lovell, Ph.D., president and CEO, Rocky Vista University, Colorado
  • Thomas M. Mitzel, Ph.D., dean of faculty/vice president of academic affairs, Trinity College, Connecticut
  • Petra M. Roter, Ph.D., vice chancellor for student affairs, University of Wisconsin Oshkosh, Wisconsin

The search committee will conduct on-campus interviews tentatively scheduled to take place Sept. 14-16. The committee will then recommend a slate of finalist candidates to the State Board of Higher Education, which will conduct final interviews on the DSU campus on Wednesday, Sept. 30, with the selection of the next DSU president announced thereafter.
