Skogen Named Temporary Chancellor of Higher Ed

Posted:

The Board of Higher Ed decides who should take on the Chancellor duties.

The State Board of Higher Education has chosen a sitting university president to be the temporary chancellor.

Board members voted this morning to appoint Bismarck State College President Larry Skogen to lead the university system until an interim chancellor is hired.

The position is open because Ham Shirvani was bought out of his contract last month.

He has been placed on administrative leave, effective immediately.

In accepting the appointment today, Skogen said there is a need to bring people together following what one board member called a year of turmoil.

Skogen will continue his job as BSC president while devoting some of his time to the daily operations of the university system, also headquartered in Bismarck.

A new interim chancellor is expected to be hired this summer.
