Dickinson State official says resignation not tied to auditDICKINSON, N.D. — A Dickinson State University administrator who recently resigned says an audit that was critical of the school was not the reason for his departure.
Steve Glasser (GLAH’-zur) tells The Bismarck Tribune (http://bit.ly/yjkwiN) that he left because of a good job offer at American Bank Center. He resigned Feb. 3 and his last official day at DSU was Wednesday.
The audit publically released Feb. 10 determined the school awarded hundreds of degrees to foreign students who didn't earn them.
Glasser says that his work at the school involved recruitment of domestic and not international students. He says he had no direct involvement in the awarding of the degrees.
State University System Chancellor William Goetz (getz) declined to comment on Glasser's statement.
