VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — Valley City State University has launched a search for the school's next president.

The university has set an Aug. 25 application deadline. A presidential search committee will review the applications. Top candidates will be forwarded to the state Board of Higher Education for consideration.

Current Valley City State President Steven Shirley is taking over as president of Minot State University in July. Vice President for Academic Affairs Margaret Dahlberg will oversee Valley City State until a new president takes office, likely in January.
