ND Higher Ed Board to Decide Presidents' Salaries

Posted: Updated:

N.D. (AP) - The state Board of Higher Education is holding its first meeting since Bismarck State College president Larry Skogen was named interim chancellor of the university system and asked to review some evaluations of fellow presidents. 

Skogen took over for Hamid Shirvani, whose three-year contract was bought out by the board after just one year on the job. Shirvani had planned on staying until July 15, but was placed on administrative leave after controversy over his assessments of college presidents. 

Skogen, who reworked four reviews by presidents who were unhappy with Shirvani's performance reviews, says he would like to change the way evaluations are done in the future. 

The board at its Wednesday meeting in Bismarck is scheduled to assess the evaluations and decide on salaries for the state's 10 presidents.
