New NDUS chancellor chosen
BISMARCK -- The state Board of Higher Education has hired a chancellor they believe can bring change to the system.
The board voted 5-3 Tuesday to choose Hamid "Ham" Shirvani, president of California State University-Stanislaus, as the next leader of the state's university system.
He expects to officially begin July 1, but said he plans to make trips to North Dakota before then to begin preparing for his new role.
