No Women Among the Six Semifinalists to Lead the University of North Dakota System

The North Dakota Board of Higher Education has named six semifinalists for chancellor of the University of North Dakota system. None of the six semifinalists are women. There were 21 applicants for the job. Two were women.

Grant Shaft president of the Board of Higher Education said that the search committee and the consultants hired by the search committee actively recruited women for the position. Shaft told the Associated Press, “You’d like to see women candidates in the mix, but at the end of the day, that is where we are at.”

The University of North Dakota system operates six four-year universities and five community colleges. More than 48,000 students are enrolled on the system’s 11 campuses.
