DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A committee searching for Dickinson State University’s next president has narrowed the list of candidates from 47 to 10.

The North Dakota University System said in a news release that the presidential search committee met Tuesday to trim the list of candidates. Those remaining include educators from the University of Wyoming and University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh.

The committee will interview finalists next month and recommend a slate of finalists to the State Board of Higher Education. The board would then conduct on-campus interviews Sept. 30, and a selection for president would be announced after that.

The board appointed Jim Ozbun as the university’s interim president earlier this month, after D.C. Coston said he was stepping down due to health concerns. Coston had earlier announced his retirement and planned to stay until a new leader was picked.
