NDSU president ‘surprised’ by critical performance review

State News

FARGO, N.D. (AP) — North Dakota State University President Dean Bresciani has signed an agreement with the state Board of Higher Education to stay on the job for 18 more months, following a harsh performance review.

The contract calls for Bresciani to serve out his term through the end of 2022. After that, he will become a tenured professor in health sciences and education.

The board released documents on Wednesday relating to Bresciani’s unusually critical evaluation. Bresciani said in a memo that he was taken aback by the “overall negative tenor of the summary” and disputed many of its assertions.
