WAHPETON, N.D. The North Dakota State College of Science Presidential Search Committee has narrowed its search for a new campus president to four individuals who will interview on campus between Feb. 28 and March 8.

"The candidates bring an extremely strong range of leadership experience from colleges with similar outlooks as NDSCS," said Jeffry Volk, a member of the State Board of Higher Education who is co-chairing the search committee with Terry Marohl, NDSCS associate professor and transportation department chair.

The four candidates include:

Rod L. Flanigan, Ph.D., dean of business and technology at Cochise College in Arizona.
