BISMARCK, N.D. — The new chancellor of the North Dakota University System is touring the state to talk with lawmakers.
Mark Hagerott took over the position earlier this month from interim Chancellor Larry Skogen, who is returning to his position as president of Bismarck State College. Hagerott is a Mandan native and Rhodes scholar who was a leading cybersecurity expert and professor with the Navy.
Legislators across the state have been invited to attend listening sessions beginning Thursday in Minot and continuing with meetings in Williston, Grand Forks, Fargo, Jamestown, Dickinson and Bismarck.
Hagerott says he believes the meetings will give him an idea how people view higher education in North Dakota and the expectations they have for the future.
