Skogen appointed interim chancellor of ND colleges

Posted: Updated:

FARGO, N.D. (AP) - Bismarck State College president Larry Skogen has been named interim chancellor of the North Dakota University System.

The state Board of Higher Education voted Wednesday to hire Skogen, who has been serving as acting chancellor since the board bought out the contract of Hamid Shirvani.

Skogen and former state commerce commissioner Shane Goettle were finalists for the job.

Skogen is expected to take over by Nov. 1. The contract runs until June 2015, which would allow Skogen to serve through the 2015 legislative session.

North Dakota residents will go to the polls in November 2014 to decide whether the state should dump the higher education board and chancellor and replace it with a three-member commission appointed by the governor.

The board held its monthly meeting Wednesday in Bismarck.
