Bismarck, ND (WDAY TV) - The back and forth continues over University Chancellor Hamid Shirvani.

A day after a university system employee told lawmakers Shirvani told her to alter data, to make universities look bad, and ultimately give him more power over the presidents.

The chair of the education committee says those claims are baseless and that Shirvani provided lawmakers with documentation, proving he did not falsify graduation rate data, instead showing institutions in a better light.
