Montana State still searching for ag school leader

Four candidates visited MSU in April for interviews, but none was hired to lead the College of Agriculture and Montana Agricultural Experiment Station.

BOZEMAN, Mont. (AP) — Montana State University says it is still looking for a new vice president of agriculture after a recent search failed to fill the post.

The Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports four candidates visited MSU in April for interviews, but none was hired to lead the College of Agriculture and Montana Agricultural Experiment Station.

Engineering College Dean Brett Gunnink is chairman of the 22-member search committee. He says they had a great pool of candidates but the university was unable to find a fit that worked for both the top choices and the university.

MSU announced Monday that applications are still being accepted and the university hopes to bring another pool of candidates to campus this fall.

In January, MSU President Waded Cruzado elevated the position of agricultural dean to a vice president.
