The Valley City State University presidential search committee met in Valley City Oct. 13 –Oct. 15. The committee interviewed five candidates in person.

“These interviews were a great opportunity for the candidates to visit the campus and give them a better understanding of the culture at Valley City State,” said Board Chair Kirsten Diederich, who also chairs the presidential search committee.

The committee narrowed the pool to two finalists. After being named a finalist, one candidate withdrew his application. The remaining finalist, Tisa A. Mason, Ed.D., vice president for student affairs, Fort Hays State University, will now be interviewed by the Board.

The State Board of Higher Education will conduct the final interview at 8: 40 a.m. on Thursday, Oct. 30 prior to that day’s Board meeting at VCSU. The Board’s decision on the next VCSU president will be announced immediately following the interview.
