ND higher ed chancellor says he's 'hoping it all works out' and NDSU's president remains - Patrick Springer, In Forum

President Dean Bresciani has been in limbo since the board decided in late June to delay action on whether to extend his contract in light of concerns, including what members regarded as poor communications and signs NDSU's standing as a research university is slipping. Bresciani appears to have significant backing, the chancellor said, noting that he will meet with local business leaders. "Obviously, people feel very supportive," Hagerott said. Budget cuts, including a 4 percent cut that already has been imposed and future cuts, are serving as a catalyst to improve efficiency and collaboration throughout the university system, Hagerott said. "It's going to get hard," he said, referring to cuts that will follow a special legislative session in August, which could force personnel cuts. Some campus presidents have already trimmed administration positions.
