Another late application for UND presidency brings total to 40

GRAND FORKS, N.D. -- Another late application has been submitted for the presidency at the University of North Dakota, bringing the total number of candidates to 40.

Allen Lee Sessoms applied Monday. He has been a professor at the Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., since 2015 and served as the University System of the District of Columbia president from 2008 to 2013, a position from which he was fired after he reorganized the system and raised tuition, according to WJLA, a TV news station based in Washington, D.C. WJLA also noted there were concerns with how he used travel and housing provided to him.

Forty candidates applied for the position before the Jan. 4 deadline, though three of those withdrew their applications because they did not want their names to be subject to North Dakota's opens record laws.

The UND Presidential Search Committee meets Wednesday morning and will decide at that time whether to consider the three late applications.
