Final MSU President Candidate

Posted: Updated:

All four semi-finalists for the job of President at Minot State University have now had their on-campus interview sessions.

The final applicant spent time at the university today.

Martin Slann is currently the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences at the University of Texas at Tyler.

Slann says he is impressed at the level of connection the students have to the issues facing the university.

He says he believes the administrator at a university such as MSU needs to be involved in what's going on all over campus.

(Martin Slann, MSU President Candidate) "I would be a hands-on president and someone who would be very visible on campus, someone who would be seen walking around every day, talking to students in particular, but also members of the faculty and the staff, finding out how they're doing, what they need, what can I do for them."

The MSU Presidential Search Committee will now trim the finalist list to three and submit the names to the State Board of Higher Education.

The board meets in Minot in two weeks and will select a new president at that time.

The person selected will take over for Dr. David Fuller, who is retiring after ten years as MSU president.
