BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The North Dakota University System has named the members of a committee that will search for the new president of Valley City State University.
The members of the committee announced on Monday are tasked with finding the successor of Steven Shirley who will be taking over as Minot State University president in July 2014.
Kirsten Diederich is the chair of the state's Board of Higher Education. She will head the committee that is composed of students, faculty, staff and community leaders.
A national search firm that is yet to be selected will assist in the process.
Shirley is in his sixth year at Valley City State. He has spent 17 years in higher education. He previously served as vice president and dean of student affairs at Dakota State University.
