MSU Billings kicks off search for chancellor with community forum

Posted: Updated:

BILLINGS - Officials at MSU Billings announced last week they will begin a search for a permanent chancellor.

On Monday, Montana State University President Waded Cruzado was in Billings, hosting a community forum for the public to discuss the search.

Many of those in attendance expressed their support for the universities interim chancellor, Dr. Ron Larsen.

Larsen has been at the helm of the university for the last year and has not said whether he will apply for the permanent position.

The overwhelming response from the community members, staff and students in attendance was a desire for stability at the university.

"What I heard today is that we want to have a leader who is very student-centered,” said Cruzado. “That understands the needs of the faculty and the staff and a person who is able to inspire all of us - the entire community and the region - to elevate MSU-Billings to its next level of excellence."

Cruzado said the goal is to have a full time chancellor appointed by July 1.
