10 apply for 2 seats on state Board of Higher Education
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Ten people have applied for two seats that are opening this summer on North Dakota’s Board of Higher Education.
The governor-appointed board oversees the 11 public colleges and universities in the state. It has eight voting members and two nonvoting members who represent university system faculty and staff.
The terms of Kevin Melicher of Fargo and Mike Ness of Hazen end at the close of June. Melicher is seeking to serve a second term; Ness is not.
Whoever Gov. Doug Burgum appoints to the seats will serve four-year terms beginning July 1.
