How many other people in this community and state deserve apologies? A lot....I just feel this horse has been beaten to death and we should be focusing on this community as a whole....

I have had to work with Shirvani on a daily basis and I could not be more happy that he is no longer allowed to continue his path of destruction. The man is an absolute sociopath, with no regard for honesty and decency. I know that leaders are not always "nice" and that staff's "feelings" are not their first priority but he has single-handedly destroyed the careers of some of the finest people I've met. Dr. Fuller, I am so happy you had the chance to express your feelings to the Board members. Too bad Shirvani wasn't there so you could look right into his devil eyes while you exposed him for the POS that he is.

It's not even the fact that Shirvani rocked the boat as a "leader". He held secret meetings and showed ridiculously unprofessional behavior. He had no regard for ethics or rules. I agree that his comments should be stricken from those records.

In his radio interview, Dr. Shirvani wasn't at all shy in sharing his real feelings about his job and about the people of North Dakota.

I'd say these evaluations are par for the course.

It was mentioned in this article that interim chancelleor Skogen has good communication skills and works well with people. That kind of person is exactly what the job calls for.

Shame on the board for not doing a more thorough resume search on Dr. Shirvani. Some essentials might have shown up.

@disgusted - You are referring to Shirvani, correct? Because he is a sniveling baby that just had to once again show his true colors as he was being pushed out of his job.

Dr. Fuller is just trying to protect his reputation from the actions of an absolutely megalomaniacal and vindictive person that was fired and whose words should have no bearing on anything in regard to higher education in this state.

I applaud Dr. Fuller for demanding this be expunged from his record at Minot State. It's the right thing to do - and by this point the State Board of Higher Ed. should be used to cleaning up the messes left behind by Shirvani.
