Search is underway for new Williston State College president
Progress is being made in the search for a new president to lead Williston State College, according to information provided by the North Dakota University System.
AGB Search, the consultants who are assisting with the search at Williston State, met with several constituents, including faculty, staff, and alumni and community members, in listening sessions last fall. The data gathered was used to develop a profile for what qualities constituents would like to see in the next president. AGB has used the profile to gather interested applicants for the president position.
Twenty-nine candidates met qualifications and were forwarded to the Presidential Search Committee for their initial review. The committee met in executive session on Wednesday to discuss candidates. After thorough discussion and analysis, 11 candidates were identified and have been offered an opportunity for a virtual interview March 15-16.
The new WSC president will succeed John Miller, who is scheduled to retire June 2021.
