Interim chief named new president of Sioux City college
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) — The interim leader of Briar Cliff University in Sioux City has been named the new president.
The university trustees announced their choice of Rachelle Karstens on Tuesday. She’s been leading the campus since last summer, following the resignation of President Hamid Shirvani. He quit after 14 months on the job.
Karstens was among three finalists for the job and was named interim president in February after a person who was offered the job withdrew from consideration because of family obligations.
Briar Cliff is a private, Franciscan, Roman Catholic university that has an enrollment of about 1,200 students.
