Hanson to lead Bemidji State
Minnesota State Colleges and Universities made the appointment on the recommendation of Chancellor James H. McCormick. The 60-year-old Hanson on July 12 will replace Jon Quistgaard, who is retiring.
Hanson last December replaced Joseph Chapman, who resigned at NDSU after criticism of his spending. Hanson unsuccessfully applied to be Chapman’s permanent successor.
Hanson previously has worked at Waldorf College in Iowa; Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D.; and California State University, Chico.
