North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple says it would be nice if the controversy surrounding the university system chancellor would "settle down," but adds that intense scrutiny of higher education is nothing new.
Chancellor Hamid Shirvani has been under fire in recent weeks for his management style. The state Senate has set aside money to buy out his contract and six former North Dakota college presidents have called for his ouster.
Lawmakers are debating proposals that would change the way higher education is governed, but Dalrymple says the current system is still the best.
