Eight advance in search for president

The North Dakota State University presidential search committee will interview eight candidates for the position.

Committee members decided Tuesday to invite two more candidates in addition to the six they already moved forward in the search.

The additional candidates are Richard Davenport, president of Minnesota State University, Mankato, and Gary Miller, provost and vice president for academic affairs and research at Wichita (Kan.) State University.

The committee met Tuesday to discuss reference checks for five candidates who submitted their names later in the search process.

The six the committee advanced last week:

The committee will interview the candidates April 10-11 at the Ramada Plaza & Suites in Fargo.

A total of 29 people applied for the job, including Dick Hanson, interim NDSU president, and D.C. Coston, NDSU vice president for agriculture and extension.
