A college dean from The University of Texas at Tyler is one of four semifinalists in the running for the job of president at Minot State University in North Dakota.

Martin Slann, dean of UT Tyler’s College of Arts and Sciences, is one of 37 people who applied for the job, according to an Associated Press story.

The position will become open when President David Fuller retires in June, according to the story.

The search committee narrowed the candidate list last month and on Tuesday interviewed eight finalists through videoconference.

In addition to Slann, the other selected semifinalists include Steven Shirley, Valley City State University president; Nicholas Piccolo, vice president for student life at Alma College in Alma, Miss.; and Lorrie Clemo, provost and vice president for academic affairs at the State University of New York at Oswego.

The state Board of Higher Education is expected to name a president when it meets at Minot State on Feb. 27, according to the story.
