Minot State students back buy out of Chancellor Shirvani

Minot State University’s Student Government has passed a resolution in support of a proposal by Sen. Tony Grindberg, R-Fargo, to amend Senate Bill 2003 to provide funding for a buyout of North Dakota University System Chancellor Hamid Shirvani’s contract.

It would reportedly cost $600,000 to buy out the contract of the chancellor, who has been on the job for less than a year.

The resolution passed by a simple majority at the group’s Feb. 11 meeting.

“As a group we decided it was a necessary step to take,” said Lindsey Nelson, president of the MSU Student Government, on Friday.
