3 finalists interviewed for top Briar Cliff University post
SIOUX CITY, Iowa (AP) - Briar Cliff University leaders have interviewed the three finalists to become president of the Sioux City school.
The Sioux City Journal reports that the three include an executive vice president of the university, Rachelle Karstens. The two others are Thomas Knothe, dean of business and leadership at Viterbo University in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and Timothy Laurent, vice president of academic affairs at the University of Providence in Great Falls, Montana.
It's unclear when one of them will be offered the post vacated by Hamid Shirvani. He announced his resignation July 26, saying it was "a result of a combination of family, personal and professional considerations."
Shirvani began his Briar Cliff stay on June 1 last year, replacing Bev Wharton, who led the private Sioux City college for 15 years.
