Due Process for Me but Not for Thee Says the State Board of Higher Education

I recently published a statement here on SAB from Don Morton and Greg Stemen, the Chairman and Vice Chairman of North Dakota’s State Board of Higher Education respectively.

Did the State Board of Higher Education Make Another Bad Hire for Chancellor?

At this point the question needs to be asked: Are certain members of the State Board of Higher Education standing behind Chancellor Mark Hagerott because they’re convinced he’s still the best man for the job?

Lawmaker: Chancellor Fired Vice Chancellor to Make Room for “Navy Buddy”

“It’s pretty obvious that Dr. Feldner, who’s had 20 plus years of dedicated service to the state, was fired in part because the Chancellor needed budget money to hire his former Navy buddy,” state Rep.

Report From 2016 Alleges Inappropriate Language, Gender Bias From NDUS Chancellor
