@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.

Dr.Shirvani has had his share of controversy per Wiki...In April 2010, California Attorney General Edmund G. Brown, Jr. announced an investigation to accusations that the university officials including Hamid Shirvani violated public records laws when they refused to reveal the financial details of a contract with former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin to speak at a university fundraiser, and allegedly shredded documents related to the agreement. [3]

The contract was reportedly found in a recycling bin along with other CSU documents. These were found by two unnamed CSUS students after a tip they received stating that there was documents being shredded at the CSU on a Furlough Day. In August 2010, the Attorney General concluded his investigation and found that there was no misappropriation of funds by the Foundation and no violation of law

So good luck getting that apology Dr.Fuller... whoever hired the over qualified Dr.Shirvani should apologize to the students/taxpayers of ND?

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.

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.

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.

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....

All Dr.Fullofhimself did with his sniveling about his poor job review, was to confirm everything Dr.Shirvani articulated in his evaluation...sometimes the truth hurts...and thats what angered the MSU dictator.
