Hanson says audit was biggest challenge

Monday was Hanson's last day at the helm of NDSU. New president Dean Bresciani (bruh-SHAW'-nee) was taking over Tuesday.

Hanson on July 12 will become the next president of Bemidji State University and Northwest Technical College in Minnesota.

Former NDSU President Joseph Chapman resigned last December after criticism of his spending. Hanson led the school through that and other challenges, including a budget shortfall and the partial collapse of a campus building.
