DICKINSON, N.D. (AP) - A committee searching for Dickinson State University’s next president has invited five candidates to the southwestern North Dakota campus for in-person interviews later this month.

The committee has whittled down a list of applicants that numbered nearly 50. Those remaining are University of Wyoming professor Stephen Easton, Peru State College President Daniel Hanson, Rocky Vista University President and CEO Cheryl Lovell, Trinity College dean and vice president Thomas Mitzel and University of Wisconsin Oshkosh Vice Chancellor Petra Roter.

The search committee will conduct on-campus interviews in mid-September and then recommend finalists to the state Board of Higher Education, which will conduct final interviews on the DSU campus Sept. 30 before selecting a new president.

Former President D.C. Coston stepped down in August due to health concerns.
