Posted on 9/14/2018

Valley City, N.D.-The Presidential Search Committee at Valley City State University has selected three finalists for the VCSU presidency. After a round of campus visits by five candidates Sept. 10-12, the committee selected a trio of candidates for final interviews with the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education on the VCSU campus Sept. 27.

The finalists are:
Jack Geller, Ph.D., dean, College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education, University of Tampa (Tampa, Florida)
Alan LaFave, D.M.A., provost and vice president for academic affairs, Northern State University (Aberdeen, South Dakota)
James Williams, Ph.D., MBA, vice president for student affairs, Emporia State University (Emporia, Kansas)

"These three candidates emerged from a robust round of campus interviews with students, faculty, staff and alumni, along with foundation and community representatives," said Wesley Wintch, VCSU vice president for business affairs and co-chair of the search committee. "We are confident each would bring outstanding leadership experience to the Valley City State University presidency."

The finalists will interview with the State Board of Higher Education in Valley City on Thursday morning, Sept. 27, with the selection of the next VCSU president announced thereafter.
