Chancellor Review

May 10, 2013 at 8:21 am

The state Board of Higher Education will be reviewing the job performance of embattled University System Chancellor Hamid Shirvani.
 
     The board approved a motion at Thursday's meeting in Grand Forks to conduct the special assessment, which should include surveys of university system employees and others.
 
     The action came after board member Kari Reichert added an agenda item to discuss Shirvani's leadership skills. Reichert and board member Janice Hoffarth say there has been an "alarming" turnover rate among university system employees since Shirvani took over less than a year ago.
 
     Shirvani says he was given a mandate to overhaul the higher education system. The board has previously supported him.
