Hanson to lead Bemidji State

Interim North Dakota State University President Richard Hanson will be the next president of Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College.

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 Chapmanā€™s permanent successor.

Hanson previously has worked at Waldorf College in Iowa; Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D.; and California State University, Chico.
