The dean of the Dakota College at Bottineau will be leaving his position this summer.

Dr. Jerry Migler made the announcement on campus this week – and told the Board of Higher Education he will leave at the end of his contract – June 30th.

"The college is at a good spot, both in enrollment and financially," Migler told the Board. "It seems like a good time to transition, and providing opportunities, for someone else."

DCB is a satellite of Minot State University – and Migler reports to MSU president Steve Shirley. Shirley told the Board he will be moving forward with the search for Migler’s replacement.

"It will be a good search, and we will have a lot of good candidates, because of where the campus is sitting right now," Shirley said. "The campus is really in a good position — at historically high levels — and there are a number of really nice, exciting building projects that have been completed, or are in progress."

Shirley said the campus is in a good place, thanks to Migler's six and a half years of leadership, as well as "all of the wonderful faculty and staff we have at the Dakota College at Bottineau."

Shirley said his goal is to have someone in place by July first.
