Hamid Shirvani is out as chancellor of the North Dakota University System, according to a newspaper report.

The former California State University, Stanislaus president was voted out by North Dakota's State Board of Higher Education, according to a story in the Bismark Tribune Newspaper.

The newspaper reported that the board met Sunday and Monday for its annual retreat, and on Monday took up a proposal Shirvani submitted more than a week ago to either allow him to continue his three-year contract with “complete autonomy and full support of the board” or buy out his contract.

The board chose the latter.

Shirvani served as president of Cal State Stanislaus for seven years before taking the North Dakota job. His tenure at the Turlock campus was marked by high-profile ups and downs, including a tumultuous relationship with faculty and staff.
