Search committees appointed (8/28/2012)


I recently assigned two search committees. One committee will lead a search for a permanent assistant director/program leader for agriculture and natural resources, and will be chaired by Deb Gebeke. The other committee will lead a search for a new Southeast district director and will be chaired by Brad Cogdill. I thank all of the people listed below for their work on these committees, as it is important service.

As always, we will search for the best applicants, and I encourage you to assist with this recruitment. If you are aware of highly qualified individuals through your various networks, whether internal or external, please encourage them to apply when the positions are formally posted on the NDSU employment website. I look forward to having these positions filled on a permanent basis to support our staff and programs.
