Statement on NDSA Actions
BISMARCK, N.D. - As the current president, vice president and immediate past president of the State Board of Higher Education, we are disappointed in the recent resolutions of the North Dakota Student Association. The Board remains in full support of the policies adopted by the Board and implemented by Chancellor Shirvani. The Board hired Chancellor Shirvani to assist the Board in implementing reforms to the University System with the intent of elevating the quality of the overall system while focusing on greater accountability and efficiencies. Chancellor Shirvani has worked tirelessly to engage all of our constituencies with a passion that has been absent for some time. In a very short period of time, Chancellor Shirvani's leadership and knowledge have aided the Board in addressing problems that have plagued the Board for many years. In carrying out our overall policies, directions, and agenda he has worked arduously and with dedication to make North Dakota's colleges and universities into a student-centered and mission-driven system.
