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.
Never miss a local story.
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.
