New MSU President Takes Over

Posted: Updated:

Minot State University is under new leadership as of today -Dr. Steven Shirley officially started his presidency at the college, after being the president at Valley City State University for 6 years.

Prior to this, Shirley had experience at universities in South Dakota, Minnesota, and also has a background in business.

He says he is excited to be in a new community and work to continue to push Minot State forward.

(Dr. Steven Shirley, MSU President) "Minot State University is a fantastic university, this is a wonderful community, and every time you come back, you just, I think, sense and realize that a little bit more. So coming to work now the last couple of days has just really kind of engrained and reinforced those feelings."

Shirley is taking over for Dr. David Fuller, who retired after 10 years of presidency at Minot State University.
