NORTH DAKOTA STATE UNIVERSITY NEWS NDSUâ€™s fall 2010 enrollment sets record
Fargo, N.D. Sept. 21 -- North Dakota State Universitys fall 2010 enrollment has set a record for the eleventh consecutive year. The university's official fourth week enrollment is 14,407 undergraduate... Posted on 9/21/10 at 1:22 PM
North Dakota University System Chancellor Hamid Shirvani provided “clear and compelling evidence” the State Board of Higher Education is “committed to and compliant” with accreditation guidelines, according to a document released Saturday.
The internal audit director for the North Dakota University System has resigned, saying he's fed up with the job and the state's wintry weather. Bill Eggert submitted his letter of resignation on Friday. His last day is May 31.
Sen. Tony Grindberg, R-Fargo, is proposing to buy out the contract of Hamid Shirvani, North Dakota University System chancellor, whose leadership Grindberg said is “questionable.” But the State Board of Higher Education, the only body that can dismiss Shirvani, backs him “100 percent.”
A meeting between the North Dakota legislative higher education committee and Chancellor Hamid Shirvani was “tense” Thursday after he revealed the details of his proposed reform to the education system, said Sen. Mac Schneider, D-Grand Forks.
The changes put new chancellor Hamid Shirvani in charge of any search for a new college president. It specifies that North Dakota's college presidents report to the chancellor. Before, the lines of authority were blurrier.
Student Body President Logan Fletcher said he supports the new admission standards if it allows UND to improve on an academic level. “Whether or not this is the only way to do that is something I’m unsure of,” he said.
The stricter admission standards would likely cut down on the number of students being accepted to UND, something that may have benefits for students who make the cut.
A day after new North Dakota University System Chancellor Hamid Shirvani announced he wanted to make sweeping changes to the system, some longtime critics of the system say they like what they're hearing so far.
The state Board of Higher Education has hired a chancellor they believe can bring change to the system. The board voted 5-3 Tuesday to choose Hamid “Ham” Shirvani, president of California State University-Stanislaus, as the next leader of the state’s University System.
