FARGO, N.D. (AP) - The interim president of North Dakota State

University is one of three finalists for the presidency of Bemidji

State University and Northwest Technical College in Minnesota.

The current president of those schools, Jon Quistgaard, plans to

retire this summer. His successor is expected to be named on May

19.

Richard Hanson stepped down as the president of Waldorf College

in Iowa to become NDSU's interim president late last year. He

replaced Joseph Chapman, who resigned after criticism of his

spending.

Hanson applied to be Chapman's permanent successor but was

eliminated from contention by a search committee.
