State Board of Higher Ed Meets To Discuss Shirvani's Performance

Posted:

The State Board of Higher Education holds a special meeting to discuss Chancellor Ham Shirvani.

While it is routine for the board to evaluate the chancellor on a annual basis, there is a lot of interest in this particular review.

Today's meeting was held to discuss Shirvani's performance evaluation, however not much was actually said about how he's doing his job.

One board member stepped up to say that the controversy around the Chancellor doesn't just fall on Shirvani, but the entire board.

"Lets be honest it's not just this report, we've all read the paper, I know a lot of focus of this controversy has been on the Chancellor but I think as a board we bear some responsibility here for the environment we find ourselves in and you know I would hope all of us agree that hey I can do things better, we can communicate not through the media but directly," Board member Kari Reichert said.

Republican Senator Tony Grindberg also spoke at today's meeting.

Grindberg shared his reasoning for why he thinks the board is in the position they are today.

"This environment, the leadership is not going to a good place, and so I wanted to share with you why I think this is happening, the board, members of the board and the whole environment over this new model is what's transpired to today that's my opinion," Tony Grindberg said.

 

A committee was established at today's meeting to do the preliminary work for the evaluation on the chancellor.
The entire board will meet later to discuss his evaluation.
