School Of Mines Search For New President Underway

The South Dakota School of Mines and Technology has begun a search for a new president, but an announcement isn't expected until next spring.

South Dakota Board of Regents director Jack Warner tells the Rapid City Journal ( that the regents are allowing plenty of time for a process that uses broad base input from the campus and surrounding community.

The hiring committee is made up of 19 people, including students and faculty, community members, regents and two professional consultants.

Warner says the goal is to hire a leader with some prominence and experience.

Duane Hrncir has been serving as acting president since President Robert Wharton died in September.

The new president's expected start date is July 1.
