UND has selected a finalist for an administrator search as it whittles down a batch of applicants looking to serve as dean of its business school.

The university announced Monday it will host Amy Whitney, associate director of an entrepreneurship program at Clark University in Worcester, Mass., as the sole finalist in the hunt for a new director of the UND Center for Innovation.

The center operates as a branch of the UND College of Business and Public Administration and is tasked with providing entrepreneurship services and mentoring to both campus and the wider community. The facility has been without a permanent leader for about a year following the departure of its founder, Bruce Gjovig.

Whitney will be on campus March 19 to interview for the post, according to a UND press release. She was the only one of six candidates interviewed to be invited to campus. As part of her visit, she'll sit for an open forum scheduled for noon that same date in the Idea Lab of the center's home in the campus Ina Mae Rude Entrepreneur Center.

Meanwhile, the college that oversees the center is also moving closer to finding a new leader. UND also announced Monday the dean search committee has narrowed down a list of 25 applicants to just nine. Committee members will conduct video interviews with candidates on March 19 and 21 to choose finalists to be brought to campus April 4-9.

The business college has been without a leader since last spring, when previous Dean Margaret Williams left for a position at Texas Tech University. The college at UND has been led on an interim basis by Steve Light, associate vice president for academic affairs.
