January 28, 2015

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. “With increasing workforce needs and a predicted enrollment boom by 2018, we’re looking for a visionary chancellor who can seize these unprecedented opportunities and take the higher education system to the next level.”

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.

Dr. Larry C. Skogen has served as interim chancellor since June 2013. He will return to his position as president of Bismarck State College on July 1, 2015.

A website dedicated to the chancellor search and detailing the job qualifications has been set up at www.ndus.edu/system/ndus-chancellor-search. Nominations and applications should be submitted to nduschancellor@agbsearch.com.
