BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — Nominations and applications are being accepted by the North Dakota Board of Higher Education to fill the role of interim chancellor for the state's University System.

The interim chancellor will be replacing Hamid Shirvani, whose contract was bought out last week after questions about his leadership style. The buyout will cost state taxpayers more than $925,000.

The board will review applicants at its June 20 meeting in Bottineau and is slated to make an appointment before the end of the month.
