VALLEY CITY, N.D. (AP) — The committee searching for a new president for Valley City State University has narrowed the pool of candidates to five.

The semifinalists will be invited to campus for interviews in mid-October. The search committee then will recommend finalists to the state Board of Higher Education, which will conduct final interviews on Oct. 30 and choose a successor to Steven Shirley.

Shirley took over as president of Minot State University in July.

The semifinalists for the Valley City State presidency are: Fort Hays State vice president Tisa Mason, Wisconsin-Stevens Point provost and vice chancellor Greg Summers, Nebraska-Omaha associate vice chancellor Daniel Shipp, Minnesota West Community and Technical College past president Richard Shrubb, and Debra Thatcher, acting president of State University of New York College of Agriculture and Technology at Cobleskill.
