BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A member of North Dakota's Board of Higher Education has resigned.
Claus Lembke said today the workload and stress of serving on the board got to be too much.
The board has had to wrestle with a number of issues recently, including the University of North Dakota's Fighting Sioux nickname, problems at Dickinson State University and the hiring of a new chancellor.
Lembke says the board has also been taking a lot of public criticism.
Lembke is a lobbyist for the state Realtors’ association. His four-year term ends in July 2013. Gov. Jack Dalrymple will have to appoint someone to serve out Lembke's term.
The board has eight voting members. Another board member, Mike Haugen, is leaving the board in June after serving four years.
