The North Dakota Student Association hosted a conference call Wednesday to discuss the amendment by Sen. Tony Grindberg, R-Fargo, which would include money in the higher education funding bill to buy out Shirvani’s remaining three-year contract.
NDSU’s Student Government issued a news release saying the Student Senate plans to introduce a resolution taking a formal stance during its meeting at 6:30 p.m. in the Memorial Union Great Plains Ballroom.
The statewide student association’s leaders decided Wednesday to get input from the 11 public campuses’s student governments, and the group will host another call next week to discuss options.
The NDSA Assembly expects to adopt a formal stance on the amendment during its Feb. 22-23 meeting at Bismarck State College.
