The search for a new North Dakota State University provost and vice president for academic affairs enters the final four this week.
Finalists for the post will begin making campus visits on Monday.
Neil Gudmestad, distinguished professor and chairman of the search committee, said all four finalists are well-qualified.
“We wanted to attract a potential administrator from an institution that we aspire to,” Gudmestad said. “I think that’s true in every one of these cases.”
Each candidate will spend two days on campus and give an open forum in the Memorial Union Century Theater.
Here is the schedule for their visits:
Howard Grimes, vice president for research and dean of the graduate school at Washington State University, will visit campus Monday and Tuesday. The open forum is at 9 a.m. Tuesday.
Cheryl Schrader, associate vice president for strategic research initiatives and former dean of the College of Engineering at Boise State University, will visit campus Wednesday and Thursday. The open forum is at 9 a.m. Thursday.
Brad Fenwick, professor in the Department of Pathobiology at University of Tennessee and former vice chancellor of research and engagement at UT, will visit campus April 11-12. The open forum is at 9 a.m. April 12.
