BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — The search is on for the next president of the University of North Dakota.

The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education appointed Dr. Joshua Wayne as interim president. Wayne is the dean of the university’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences.

The co-chairmen of the search committee are Dr. Casey Ryan, a medical school member and Dr. Dennis Elbert, a university alumnus.
