Higher Ed Flap

Feb 8, 2013 at 7:39 am

A lawmaker who's been critical of the North Dakota University System chancellor says Hamid Shirvani has resolved questions about a Grand Forks building.
 
     But Fargo Sen. Tony Grindberg hasn't changed his mind about a proposal to provide money to buy out Shirvani's contract.
 
     Shirvani has been criticized for a proposal to create office space in a new information technology building on the University of North Dakota campus. He and Board of Higher Education President Duaine Espegard told a legislative committee Thursday that the office was never planned as a private executive suite, and doesn't affect the size or cost of the building.
 
     Grindberg has criticized Shirvani as being a questionable leader who has created an environment of fear and retaliation. Shirvani says he's doing what he was hired to do.
