Bismarck State College President, Dr. Larry Skogen is appointed Interim Chancellor for the North Dakota University system.
This afternoon the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education votes five to three in favor of Skogen.
Skogen has been serving as Acting Interim Chancellor since June, but will now work full-time for the University System.
"I'll feel less like a ping pong ball going between the Capitol and the campus and back to the Capitol for meetings and stuff so that's the big change for me but like I said I've already since June 20th I've been working very closely with the system staff and so we're just going to continue doing that, doing a lot of good things because there's a lot of good things going on in our University System it's a great system," Dr. Larry Skogen said.
Skogen's term starts November 1, 2013 and runs through June 2015.
He will appoint someone to serve as Interim President at BSC until he's finished serving as Interim Chancellor in 2015.
The other candidate for the job was Shane Goettle.
