BSU/NTC President Richard Hanson says he'll stay put


With applications due in a few weeks for the North Dakota University System chancellor's job, Richard Hanson said he's not going anywhere.

Last month, a former colleague nominated Hanson for the position, but the president at Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College said he won't apply for the job.

Hanson, who grew up in North Dakota, is now in his second year in Bemidji.
