The Mayville State University presidential search committee interviewed presidential candidates February 20 and 21 over the interactive video network (IVN) at the Mayville State campus to narrow the list of 12 candidates to five.
We’re very proud of a fine group of Mayville State University students who are involved in Collegiate DECA. Since the Mayville State Collegiate DECA chapter was officially formed in October of 2011, many students have excelled and been exceptional representatives of Mayville State University, not only locally, but also at the statewide and international levels.
Mayville State has a history of providing a wonderful basis of pedagogy and experiences that set graduates of science and biology programs on to a path to success and fulfillment. Many further their education and enjoy satisfying careers as doctors not only in the medical field, but also as holders of Ph.D.s who are researchers and teachers in advanced capacities. The experiences gained at Mayville State open doors for exciting opportunities for these graduates.
Progress is being made in the search for a new president to lead Mayville State University. Current president, Dr. Gary Hagen, has announced his plans to retire on July 31, 2018. He has served as president of the university since 2005. Hagen has served the university in various roles, including as a member of the faculty and also in various administrative positions, since 1976.
Mayville State University continues to be strategic in providing personal service to students and to make the best use of university space. As a part of this endeavor, the Byrnes-Quanbeck Library has created space so that other campus entities that provide student services can do so within the library building, making the facility a one-stop shop for many services provided by MSU.
