GRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - Minot State University President Steven Shirley is among three candidates still in the running to be the next president of the University of North Dakota.

A committee searching for the successor to retired President Robert Kelley has narrowed the list of candidates from six to three finalists after campus visits.

The other two remaining candidates are former U.S. congressman Mark Kennedy, director of the Graduate School of Political Management at George Washington University in Washington, D.C.; and Nagi Naganathan, dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Toledo.

The State Board of Higher Education will interview the three finalists Tuesday and decide on who gets the job.

Kelley retired in January. Former North Dakota Gov. and U.S. Agriculture Secretary Ed Schafer is serving as UND’s interim president.
