Committee searches for next Dakota State president

BROOKINGS (AP) -- The state Board of Regents has set up a committee to search for a new Dakota State University president.

Regent Harvey Jewett of Aberdeen will chair the search committee, which will include three other members of the board. The regents also have appointed a dozen business officials, faculty members, students and others to the search committee.

The university system is looking for someone to replace Douglas Knowlton, who left Dakota State in February to take a job in Minnesota's higher education system.

David Borofsky is serving as interim president at Dakota State until a permanent president is appointed for the university in Madison.
