NDUS searches for next VCSU president

On June 10, 2014, the North Dakota University System (NDUS) launched its search for the next president of Valley City State University.

The search was prompted by the appointment of VCSU President Steven W. Shirley to the presidency of Minot State University, another NDUS institution, effective July 1, 2014.

Margaret Dahlberg, Ph.D., VCSU vice president for academic affairs, was appointed interim president of VCSU by the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education (SBHE) on May 6. She began her duties as interim president July 1.

The VCSU Presidential Search Committee is chaired by Kirsten Diederich, SBHE chair. NDUS has retained the services of James McCormick, senior consultant at AGB Search, a national higher education leadership search firm, to assist in the process.

The State Board of Higher Education will interview finalists on the VCSU campus on Oct. 30, 2014, with the new VCSU president named thereafter.
